    Hi

    You can remove ONLY the key caps.
    Keyboard buttons cannot be removed.

    Here is some interesting video I found on youtube,

    The procedure described in the other thread means keyboard removal.
    If you want to remove the whole keyboard, you can do that as described there.
    Otherwise you can remove only the keycaps.

    You need an thin object to go under the keycap.
    Then you should be able to remove the cap from the holder.
