    Hi all,
    Does anyone know how to turn off this 'Sticky Finger' pop up. I don't even know what it is and what it's purpose is. When I am in Outlook email, when I type it types double letters, puts in double line spaces, backspacing is slow motion like watching the Six Million $ Man jumping off a building (which I am about to do:eek: ). Regardless of what I am doing this Sticky Fingers window pops up and says something about accessibility - it gives different options for turning on Sticky Fingers but not off. I am not at my computer, my friend is typing this in for me on her computer because I'm too frustrated to use mine. I have Windows XP Home Edition. My computer was built by a local company so I'm not sure what processor etc. it has, but if someone directs me in where I can find this on my computer that would be great.
    Thanks in advance,
    Sharyn (c/o Pat)

    :eek: I apologize my friend said the pop-up was Sticky Fingers (I believe that is a Barbeque sauce) she mean't Sticky Keys. She apologizes for the mistake.
    Thanks,

    Start> Run> type access.cpl and hit OK.
    Uncheck the box: Use StickyKeys then Apply and OK.
