With my foray into the world of mac I bought a full size keyboard. Unfortunately the keys , some of them are sticking is there a quick way or slow way to resolve this issue? Someone said it is not unusual on mac keyboards

What do you mean by sticky, and which specific keys?

If it's the modifier keys such as shift, option etc. it may be you have enabled sticky keys.

System Prefs -> Universal Access -> Keyboard.

Did the keyboard try and share some coffee? Personally I would just replace the keyboard if the keys are physically sticking.

Yeah, it sounds like fluid has got in there...

Any USB keyboard should do the trick - doesn't have to be an Apple one, although they do have some additional keys programmed for various shortcuts etc.
