Okay, so you agree, it IS annoying. While it is useful for some people – a helpful feature, for the rest of us it’s just another annoying pop up.

How to disable the Sticky or Filter Keys

You can either click on the *Go to the Ease of Access Center* link, or you can navigate to it in the Control Panel then to the Ease of Access center, and find the link for *“Make the keyboard easier to use*.

Once there, you will want to make sure the boxes for “Turn on Sticky Keys” or “Turn on Filter Keys” are turned off—while this means the feature is not active at the moment, it does not mean the annoying popup will go away.

For that to happen, you’ll have to click on either “Set up Filter Keys” or “Set up Sticky Keys” (or both).
