Windows 7 Sticky Keys

We’ve already covered Sticky Keys for XP users [1], but what about the Windows 7 adopters out there? Keyboard shortcuts can get a little tricky when you have to use three keys at a time, so give yourself a little pause in-between keystrokes with Sticky Keys!

Here’s how to access this feature in Windows 7:

Click Start, and in the Search Box type Sticky Keys – you’ll want to click the top selection that says Change how your keyboard works.

In the resulting window, you’ll see all sorts of options for your keyboard. Under the second header, put a check next to Turn on Sticky Keys and hit OK. That’s all there is to it!

You can also click on Set up Sticky Keys, if you like, and modify different options like pressing Shift five times to enable Sticky Keys, audible notifications when modifier keys are pressed, and whether or not an icon appears in the taskbar when Sticky Keys are enabled.

Remember, to change this stuff back just repeat these steps un-check Turn on Sticky Keys and hit OK.
