How to Permanantly Disable Sticky Keys in Windows (7, 8, XP, Vista, etc.)

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

Stickey Keys is a surprisingly annoying feature of the Windows operating system (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 8) that pops up asking if you want to turn it on whenever you hit the shift key five times in a row. This can be frustrating in a few situations, such as crouching and sneaking in minecraft (severaly limiting your teabagging?), and the same for Battlefield 3, and a lot of other games. This will show you how to turn off sticky keys in any version of Windows (including Windows 8, you just have to get there a little differently). Just skip to the sections that show how to do it on your operating system, but it’s close enough between them that you can figure it out from the directions for any one.

Step 1: Click on the start menu, and open up the control panel. In Windows XP, Vista, and 7 this can be done byjust clicking on the option on the side of the start menu for control panel. Also, in Windows XP you can click the start menu, then run, type control, and then hit enter. In Windows 8, move your mouse to the top right corner of the screen, and then hit search when it pops up, and type control in the box that pops up. Control Panel should pop up, then click on that option.

Step 3: Choose the option for “Ease of Access Center”, it might also be called Accesibility options on older versions of Windows (the list is in alphabetical order). The video shows how to do this one Windows 7 and XP, so if you’re having trouble finding the right options, just watch the video.
