How to Disable Sticky Keys in Windows

Stickykeys is a feature of Windows operating system. It allows the user to press a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed. If you play games then you might have had an annoying experience with this feature while pressing a key like ‘shift’ for five times.

But don’t you worry, you can get rid of this feature by disabling it. If you want to disable the Sticky Keys feature then follow the below steps:

Firstly, click on the ‘Ease of Access Center’ link in the Sticky Keys pop up.
In the next window click on ‘Make the keyboard easier to use
In the next window clickSetup Sticky Keys
In the final window uncheck the box ‘Turn on Sticky Keys when SHIFT is pressed five times’.
That’s it! It shouldn’t annoy you anymore.

In Windows XP, StickyKeys can also be disabled in Control Panel> Accessibility Options under the Keyboard tab by unchecking Use StickyKeys.
