Sticky keys warning in Windows 7 when using shift key?

  • Trying to use shift key to fire an alternative weapon and I'm getting sticky keys warning after tapping it repeatedly under nw.js. Can sticky keys Notifications be disabled from the game?

  • I've always just manually disabled the shortcut from control panel.

    I guess there is a way to do it programmically using some Windows specific code, but that can't be done with JavaScript in a browser.

    It could possibly be done from an addon for a nwjs, but that doesn't seem like a very simple thing to do.

    Do modern games use shift key? I know \ got blacklisted (shame, best key for squats in fps) but I'm not sure if the kids use shift or not, I like it, sits nicely above ctrl.

    I haven't played current games but most fps use Shift for sprint/run

  • It's an accessibility feature of Windows. You can't count on everyone who plays your game disabling it - so it's probably best to choose a different key!

    That's what I was thinking, but I didn't notice any other games where I used shift giving me sticky keys. I must use it all the time in dosbox, and I've never had the warning, so does dosbox do something clever to disable it?

  • Dos box disables it with a winapi function and other games may do that too, but as I said it's not something that can be done from JavaScript.
