    Unfortunately I spilled a drop of coffee on my keyboard earlier today and it seems the Fn key on my keyboard is registered as constantly being pressed down even though it isn't. Thusly, I'm unable to use the space bar or the normal F keys.

    Is there a workaround to this?

    Any other further guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    I removed the key and the plastic bits underneath. The bubble part is bouncy and responsive but there seems to be some buildup on the parts around it that feels pretty tacky.

    soak the rubber dome in alcohol and let it dry completely and do that a few times, that may wash out whatever gunk is triggering the button push

    I didn't need to soak the dome, just wipe away the crap that was around it. Managed to fix the issue but then during all the restarts it seems Windows tried to update and then got corrupted so now I'm dealing with that.

    Ah well, at least the keyboard is working properly again - a reformat is nothing new. Thanks for the help!
