Letters wearing out on keyboard

The letters on my keyboard are gettin fainter and harder to see
does anyone know a way of making them clear again??

Just learn where the letters all are and you'll be fine.

Back around 2004 or so I went for a year with a blank keyboard to force myself to learn the letters. You don't need to be able to see them if you learn them. :)

Na, to be honest I think you'd be better off just buying a cheap keyboard.

Or, you could buy little stick labels and write the letter on it which can then be stuck on the key.
Put your fingernail on one of the letters and scratch. If a layer if dirt comes off then keep doing it to see if you can see the letter better. If so, do it to each one so they become clear again.

Some options:

- Get a keyboard cover so it won't wear out the keys.
- Get Whiteout and trace each letter, let set and dry!
- Buy a new keyboard.

You should have had the keyboard cover, but if I ever lose trace of mine, I wouldn't mind since I know where my letters are.

It's kind of the opposite for me. There's a layer of I dunno what on the keys I hardly use. The Caps Lock, Windows logo, row of numbers above the main keyboard, and many of the F6 F7, etc. are all kind of dull and rough.

There's a shiny spot in the middle of my shift keys, the majority of the letters, backspace, and the bottom half of my delete button is shiny. :D
