How to Disable Filter Keys in Windows 7

Filter Keys is a Windows feature that kicks in whenever you hold down a key for 8 seconds or longer. It’s meant to be an accessibility feature that makes your keyboard easier to use, but often times it ends up confusing users who don’t understand why their keyboard has briefly stopped responding. We previously covered how to turn off Filter Keys in Windows XP and Vista. This article addresses how to turn off/disable the same feature in Windows 7.
