Keyboard Cleaner1.2

28 May 2020

Intercepts keystrokes when cleaning your keyboard.

Overview

Keyboard Cleaner comes in handy when you want to clean your keyboard, but you are afraid you might trigger a command or change or delete some of your current work beyond repair and undo. Of course you could save and close everything. Sometimes however, it is just not what you want. Enter Keyboard Cleaner. It shields your desktop and intercepts every keystroke you might accidentally make. Obviously, this is mostly for people who have laptops and can't unplug their keyboards AND do not want to shutdown their laptop to clean the keyboard.

Great to see this still getting updates. Would love for it to also lock the Touch Bar on newer MacBooks. Sent a note to the dev.

Keyboard Cleaner 1.2 is actually dated March 6, 2020. The notice of its release date at the dev page is the same. - - The confusion about its release date is due to the difference between how the USA and the UK/Europe abbreviate dates. To us, the release date looks like "03/06/2020". But dev wrote it on his website as "06/03/2020". Oops. The correct and professional way to write this date, which works everywhere and is perfect for databases is '2020/03/06', Year/Month/Day.

It's May 28, 2020. How could Keyboard Cleaner 1.2 be out today and still be listed as being released June 03, 2020? A time warp?

This application blocks all mac, not only the keyboard. The screen goes black color and can not do anything. I need to lock the keyboard to use an external one, since the integrated malfunctions and keys that are activated by themselves

Version 1.0 works great on Lion 10.7.4 - my cats no longer mess up my overnight backs ups and torrents.

I really wanted this to work under Lion but it doesn't. When I started wiping my keys all hell broke loose. Kinda funny, actually.

A great little app and very useful ... but doesn't intercept all the keys, e.g., volume.

Thanks for this great little application! Very stable and easy to use. Usage tip: Avoid to press cmd-Q while cleaning.

Brilliant! Until now I shut the laptop down to safely clean the keyboard, and because of it wasn't cleaned as often as a black MacBook needs. This little utility takes over keyboard and mouse input, its interface is obvious, a black screen with instructions to exit (just command-Q). Perfect!
