Sticky, Filter, and Toggle Keys are accessibility features in Windows that help people with physical disabilities to type more easily. Sticky Keys allow you to press and release a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows Logo key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed.

Filter Keys make the keyboard ignore brief or repeated keystrokes that could cause typing errors.

Toggle Keys play a tone each time you press the Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock keys, indicating whether those keys are on or off.

Windows lets you enable or disable the Sticky, Filter, or Toggle keys using the Settings app.
