Filter Keys is a Microsoft Windows accessibility feature that allows the computer to ignore brief and repeated keystrokes caused by slow or inaccurate finger movements.


The Filter Keys feature is enabled and disabled through the Accessibility Options or Ease of Access Center in the Windows Control Panel. You can also press and hold down the right Shift key for 8 seconds to open Filter Keys.
