Sticky Keys is a Microsoft Windows accessibility feature that causes modifier keys to remain active, even after they have been pressed and released, making it easier to do keyboard shortcuts. For example, instead of having to press Ctrl+Alt+Del all at once, a user could press Ctrl, then Alt, and then Del to perform the same function.


The Sticky Keys feature can be enabled or disabled through the Accessibility Options or Ease of Access Center in the Windows Control Panel. You can also press the Shift key five times to open the option.
