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) 🙂

    1. because the butterfly keyboard is no good to me and several others (as you can see from our internal indiamattic discussion hehe).


      1. lol of course! I prefer it to be on top of my laptop so I can view my screen better (at the correct distance).
