Microsoft Windows includes several accessibility options that help many individuals use their computers. However, some of those accessibility features can be an annoyance to users who do not need them.
For example, in Windows 7 and some earlier Windows versions, pressing the left-Shift key five times in quick succession will display a dialog box asking if you want to turn on Sticky Keys. Likewise, if you hold in the right Shift key for 8 seconds or more, which I seem to do all the time, you’re presented with a dialog box asking if you want to turn on Filter Keys.
In this week’s TR Dojo episode, I show how a quick trip to the Control Panel can prevent the Sticky Keys and Filter Keys pop-up warnings from appearing.
