Sticky keys, a feature developed for the #Windows operating system, are aimed at providing enhanced accessibility for users when using keyboard shortcuts. This feature simplifies keyboard shortcuts that require users to press multiple keys simultaneously, making it especially useful for mobile devices and individuals with certain physical disabilities.
When sticky keys are enabled, users can, for instance, press other keys without holding down keys like “Ctrl” or “Alt.” It simplifies the key combinations required for keyboard shortcuts. For example, for operations like “Ctrl + C” (copy) and “Ctrl + V” (paste), users can press the “Ctrl,” “C,” and “V” keys one by one, eliminating the need to press each key separately.
To enable or disable sticky keys, it is typically done by either pressing the “Shift” key five times in succession or configuring the settings in the “Accessibility” section. This feature helps users use keyboard shortcuts more easily and quickly, making #computer usage more accessible, especially for individuals with physical disabilities.
