My Keyboard Setup For Macbook Pro 13″

I’m fine using the new Apple butterfly keyboard on Macbook 13″ 2017 but I feel so much more comfortable on the older keyboard or an external keyboard.

I have tried using my external keyboard with my laptop by placing it on top of the in-built keyboard but it would press a key under it and create a conflict.

To fix this, I needed a way to disable the in-built keyboard while an external keyboard was connected.

I was able to achieve this using a software called Karabiner. Here’s a screenshot of the setting I used:

And here’s what my setup looks like:


Of course this is not my permanent setup and I can always switch between keyboards when I like (which is great) 🙂

Nikon D5500 Video Recording Not Working? [Fix]

My Nikon D5500 stopped recording videos. Pressing the red button didn’t do anything at all. Searching about this on the internet told me there’s a problem with the lens.

Not exactly with the lens but your camera thinks that the lens isn’t correctly attached. To fix this, simply remove the lens and attach it correctly as follows:

Press the lens-release button and while that’s pressed, just position your lens on the camera and rotate it like one degree or so. Then leave or release the lens-release button such that it’s no longer pressed.

At this point, rotate the lens completely and attach it. You should hear a click or snap or whatever which tells that the lens is in place. Turn on the camera now and press the red button and you’ll have your video recording feature back 🙂
