Sticky keys is a wonderful ease of access feature for users with special needs who may have a hard time pressing keys at the same time. Sticky keys makes it possible for those users to press keys independently in succession to open keyboard shortcuts, rather than at the same time. This means that instead of having to hold down the Control, Alt and Delete keys at the same time to bring a up a menu that lets you access Task Manager or lock your computer, a user would just need to press those keys in succession. If you turned sticky keys on by accident on your Windows 10 computer, the easiest way to disable it is to press any two keys at the same time. If that doesn’t work for you, try doing the following. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
