Question about Computers & Internet
The Filter Keys feature in Windows enables the system to ignore keystrokes that it determines are unintentional, such as when you press a key quickly or hold it down for too long. This is a particularly convenient feature if you are learning to type or have trouble typing. However, if you turn the feature on by accident, the system may mistake your typing style as mistakes and ignore some keystrokes. Open the Ease of Access Center to access the settings to turn the feature off.
Click "Start," then select "Control Panel." Click "Ease of Access" at the bottom right corner of the window. Click "Change How Your Keyboard Works" under Ease of Access Center. Uncheck the check box next to "Turn on Filter Keys" in the Make it Easier to Type section. Click "Apply," then "OK" to save the settings. Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
If your space bar isn't responding when you press it, or if it responds sluggishly, it's possible that you have inadvertently enabled the "Sticky Keys" or "Filter Keys" accessibility option in Windows.
When these options are enabled, your keyboard response time will be dramatically slowed and may require more than one tap to register a keystroke.
Fortunately, it's easy to disable these functions and return your keyboard to normal working order.
Click "Start" and select "All Programs."
Click "Accessories" and select "Ease of Access."
Click "Ease of Access Center."
Click "Make Keyboard Easier to Use."
Click "Set Up Sticky Keys." Deselect the checkbox that says "Turn on Sticky Keys When Shift is Pressed Five Times." Make sure the box that says "Turn on Sticky Keys" is not checked. Click "OK" to save your changes.
Click "Set Up Filter Keys." Uncheck the box that says "Turn on Filter Keys."
Click on the checkbox next to "Turn On Filter Keys When Right Shift Is Pressed For 8 Seconds" to deselect it. Click "OK" to save your changes.
Click "OK" again to save all of the keyboard accessibility changes you have made.
Hope this helps
