By chance I managed to enter the magic combination of pressing the Shift key 5 times...... The Windows "Sticky keys" turned on ! I tried all possible combinations to turn that sticky key combination off.... but nothing seemed to work.. Even trying to disable the sticky keys didnt seem to work! I never really felt so helpless before!
At last I had to restart my machine to get rid of this stupid feature! Now I am of the general opinion that the sticky key feature is a REAL neusance to the already "not so rosy" world of windows!
WTH!

Did you wash your hands after lunch, before typing?

Not nearly so much a PITA as having no arms and needing to type with a pencil held in your teeth.

You can turn those off somewhere in the Control Panel (Accessibility Options/Keyboard?). I can't be sure as I don't have access to a Windows machine right now.

Why do you think it is useful?
