To facilitate the removal of the keyboard, it is recommended to push the keyboard outwards with one hand through the opening (highlighted in the third picture) located on the backside of the Mini 1000. While pushing through the opening with one hand, grasp the left upper edge with the other hand and slightly pull the keyboard towards you. Once an opening has been established, grasp the keyboard and slowly lift it upwards along the upper perimeter of the top edge.
