Sticky key refers to a shortcut key in computer use, designed for people who have difficulty pressing two or more keys at the same time. The main function of sticky keys is to facilitate the use of Shift and other key combinations. For sticky keys, you can press one key position (such as shift) first, and then press another key position instead of pressing two keys at the same time, which is convenient for some people who cannot press multiple keys at the same time due to physical reasons. A normal computer will show a sticky key prompt when you press shift five times.
I have no idea about the Sticky key feature is defaultly enabled or disabled, cause I just checked my sticky key option of Windows 11, it is disabled. Most people don’t want to use sticky keys, but for the people who have difficulty to pressing two or more keys at the same time, sticky key feature is a great feature for them during using Windows 11.
So let’s see how to enable or disable sticky key feature in Windows 11.
- Press Win key and click “Settings”
- Search “Sticky” in “Settings” and choose “Sticky keys”
- The firstly option “Keyboard shortcut for Sticky keys” is the key option for you to enable or disable Windows 11 Sticky key feature.
If you turned off this option, you don’t need to turn off other options in upper screenshot. Even if you turn them off, there is no change at all. Notice: if “Keyboard shortcut for Sticky keys” is off, and you want to turn the rest off, the turn off speed is quite slow that even makes you think the big lags of Windows 11. Just wait for dozens of seconds, the clicked switcher will change.
And if you enable this feature, the rest four options will do big help during using Windows 11 Sticky keys.
