What Are Sticky Keys?

Sticky Keys helps people with disabilities or those who suffer from repetitive stress injuries. Rather than holding down a button, you can tap it, and it will stay “down” until you press another key. You can try this feature in Windows 7, 8, or 10 by pressing the Shift key five times.

A box will pop up and ask you if you want to enable it. Afterward, try typing something, and you’ll see it in action. If you don’t like holding down a key for long periods, you can use it. It can also be useful if you’re learning how to use software that makes heavy use of modifier keys.
