I am normally not one to get riled up, but I have to admit that the number of times I've seen the above dialog makes me ready to use words I shouldn't.
We are blessed with every Windows installation having Sticky Keys ready to respond to either a rapid press of the shift key or a long pause on the shift key. If you are anything like me, I often pause in thought with a finger on the shift key. Right now I pause with my finger on the shift and wonder whose decision it was to leave this on by default in Windows? ... On a lighter note, on the name "sticky keys." Isn't that something you would get if you use your keyboard immediately after peeling an especially juicy orange?
To the get dialog above:
Hit shift 5 times
Hold shift down for 5 seconds.
To turn it of from the dialog above:
- Click Settings
- On Keyboard Tab, as seen the dialog below un-select use StickyKeys
- Careful you aren't done yet. Click the settings button in the StickyKeys area.
- In that dialog un-select all the items.
- Click OK.
- Click OK once more.
