Keyboard covers protect computer keyboards from dust, dirt, and water. They are made of flexible materials with specially shaped grooves that fit over the keys. They are usually transparent to make the keys visible and accessible even when covered.
Types of Keyboard Covers
Kinds of Keyboard Covers include the following:
Molded keyboard covers
Molded keyboard covers fit snugly over the keyboard, leaving little to no space between keys and cover. They are designed for specific keyboard brands and models. They use self-adhesive tape to hold them securely in place.
Loose keyboard covers
Loose keyboard covers fall loosely over the keyboard and will fit most keyboard models. They can be awkward to use because the cover does not cling to the keys. They are generally less expensive than molded keyboard models.
Choosing Keyboard Covers (Buying tips)
Fit and compatibility: Choose a molded keyboard cover made specifically for your keyboard brand and model for a snug fit and faster typing. Material: Choose a keyboard cover made of thin rubber or plastic to provide adequate protection without reducing comfort and convenience.
