What Are Sticky Keys?

Modifier keys, which modify the function of a letter key, are found on every keyboard. Shift, for example, converts lowercase letters to uppercase and uses the “top row” characters over most keys, such as the exclamation point (!) above the 1 key.

What Is The Use Of Sticky Keys?

Instead of pressing several keys at once, it serializes keystrokes, enabling the user to press and release a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed.

Fine-Tuning Your PC The Way You Want It

Sticky Keys are inconvenient, yet they are necessary for others to use their computers. If you don’t need them, you may quickly switch them off and return to your previous task.

If you continually activating Sticky Keys while gaming, you might want to look into better optimizing your PC. Gaming Mode in Windows 10, for example, can help you improve your frame rate.
