Do you have problems holding down two or more keys on your PC? Microsoft introduced StickyKeys to the Windows platform in Windows 95.

Sticky Keys were designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys simultaneously. When a shortcut requires a key combination, such as CTRL+P, Sticky Keys will enable you to press a modifier key (CTRL, ALT, or SHIFT), or the Windows logo key and have it remain active until another key is pressed.
