The Windows operating system is designed in such a way that users who experience certain physical limitations, were able to fully use the computer, using the abundance of built-in tools.

The developers of the operating system have provided a lot of individual features of users, implementing tools in their software-assistants.

But, again, the most logical that for some users, these tools are most useful, for others they can interfere with the work, or more likely, when playing pastime.

One of the designated tools is "sticky keys", which will be discussed in this article.

What is the tool for - Sticky Keys

This function allows computer users to work with key combinations "Shift", "CTRL", "ALT" and "Windows", by the way, these keys are used in the vast majority of software as "hot".

As already mentioned earlier, this issue is particularly acute concerns of computer game lovers, as the use of the keyboard in the game (quite often) requires multiple presses on the "SHIFT" key. And as you know, five times clicking on it will minimize the active window and display a notification with a proposal to activate the tool. This is not very pleasant, especially in the process of a fierce firefight.

So, in order to disable the "sticking", it is enough to do the following:

  • Click "start" and go to "Settings";
  • Next, select "Ease of Access";
