Yep, I ruined two favorite keyboards like that before I realized what was doing it. I, too, have considered repainting the letters and am looking for the right "pen" to use.

maybe try nail polish and a fine paint brush (artist brush).

My "L" is gone and my "n" is fading. But I don't really need the letters, I guide myself by the little bumps on the F & J...but I do need the numbers. I could never learn them by touch. My computer is so old that I will probably buy a new one. But if i needed to replace a letter I think that i would use a label and if it comes off I would use another one.

My N is gone. I didn't use this keyboard but had a lighted one I loved. The light showed through the keys. No letters to rub off!! I moved and ended up with the regular one. i have found nothing that will put the letter back to stay.

These are supposed to be permanent so had to chuckle when I saw the "buy it again" note! I'll let you know!

Watson, thanks for the laugh! I turned my keyboard upside down and a ton of crumbs fell out, so I tapped in on the desk top and .... snow storm! Will have to do that more often and with a paper towel under it!

Before I had cataract surgery a couple years ago, my son-in-law found a lighted keyboard on Amazon that has worked like a charm for me. At that time, it only cost about the same as a regular keyboard. I hope you can get one.
