When you press the shift key five times in succession in Windows 10, a notification to activate sticky keys will appear. This notification can be closed afterwards, but when we press the shift key in the same way, this notification will continue to appear.

What are sticky keys?

Sticky keys is a feature in Windows that allows users to press keys one by one while using keyboard shortcuts.

For example, when you want to use shortcut copy (CTRL + C) with the sticky keys active, then what you press is the CTRL key, then the C key, instead of pressing the CTRL key, holding it down, then pressing the C key without releasing the CTRL key.
