What is the Windows Sticky Keys feature?

Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature that causes modifier keys like Shift, Control, Alt, Delete, Function and Windows to remain active even after they have been pressed and released, making it easier to use keyboard shortcuts. You only have to press and release a modifier key, then press the next key to execute a keyboard shortcut, instead of pressing them together at the same time. This can help reduce stress on your fingers.
