- If you sometimes press a key very lightly or press it so hard it activates twice, you can use the Turn On Filter Keys setting to adjust repeat rates. Use the Set Up Filter Keys link to fine-tune settings if you make this choice.
- To have Windows highlight keyboard shortcuts and access keys with an
underline wherever these shortcuts appear, click that setting.
- If you want to avoid having windows shift automatically when you move them to the edge of your screen, use the Make It Easier to Manage Windows setting.
- To save the new settings, click OK.
