Keys that are sticky usually have dried spilliage in them and tend to stick.

Re: Microsoft wired 600 keyboard/sticky keys... Wanting to know how do I enable sticky keys on my Microsoft wired 600 keyboard pls?


Sticky Keys is a software function. I am assuming you are using Windows - open the Control Panel, select the Ease of Use Center, select Make the keyboard easier to use. In here, you can turn on and setup Sticky Keys.

You may need to turn off the Filter Keys option. Follow the steps below to turn them off.
Go to

Without pressing other keys, press the SHIFT key five times to enable Sticky Keys. A window will be displayed asking you if you wish to turn on Sticky Keys Clicking Yes will enable Sticky Keys or click No.
If none of these steps work you may need to replace the keyboard or plug in an external USB keyboard.

Shift key is not working


You might consider using, at least tempory, a external usb keyboard with a touchpad, you can get get them at Wal-Mart for around $20.00
Otherwise consider taking it to a computer shop and have them test the keyboard and if need be order you a new one. If this computer is still under warranty then I would would talk to the support team that you purchase it from. Good Luck.

I don't know how to remove the keyboard


Suzuki? keyboard?
all sticky keys are dirty.
some you can clean, others not.
only way to tell is LOOK.
if it can not be dissembled, then it can not.
some keyboards, have no screws and use melted plastic or glue
preventing any service.
look. then see.

Turning off my green keys on HP pavilion desktop keyboard?


Hi,

How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature
Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center






How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off?
Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.

That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?

How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8
You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.

If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.

If this does not help you. Let us know the below details to understand the issue bettery.

Sticky keys how do i fix it?


Hi Dgr Welcome to fix ya !

The sticky keys are part of Windows Ease of Access Center Accessibility program.

1. The easiest way to enable/disable the sticky keys is to press the "Shift " key five times. This will turn on/turn off the program.

2. The second way is to press the Windows logo key + U at the same time. This will open the Ease of Access Center. Then select the link that reads" Make the keyboard easier to use."

3. Under the section that reads, "Make it easier to type" you have the option to enable the Sticky Keys or a link to Set Up Sticky Keys. Select whether you want to set up the Sticky Keys or just enable them if you have previously set them up. If setting them up for the first time, remember to click "Apply" after making your selections.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment at the end of this solution and I'll be glad to help. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

Cant figure out how to get it off the little blue symbols


Either the "blue" coloured 'FN' is _stuck_ in the "down" position, or you have accidentally activated the "Sticky Keys" Windows "accessibility" tool.

With "Sticky Keys", you press keys just _one_ at a time, e.g., CTRL then ALT then DELETE instead of pressing multiple keys (SHIFT and '8') at the same time.

Restart, in order to turn-off "Sticky Keys".

Or, "exercise" the 'FN' key, until it "unsticks" itself.

In sticky keys cannot fix by any way


Access the control panel
Start > Control Panel > Accessibility Options
OR
My Computer > Control Panel > Accessibility Options

You will find the sticky keys option their.

If you are referring to physical sticky keys, and not the accessibility software option in windows:
Using a can of compressed air to remove debris from your keyboard should solve this issue.

Let us know
Good luck
