    Possible to make shift key stick until letter is pressed?


    Basically, I want the shift key to behave like a mobile phone keyboard where you press it and it stays engaged until you press the next key and then it disengages.

    Possible?

    :)

    Is it possible to disable Shift key that toggles Chinese/English mode for WUBI IME???

    I don't know why this is happening, every new Windows makes IME harder to use...

    I found this thread seems to be promising: How to disable Shift key that toggles between Chinese and English input?

    BUT, WHY, WHY this option doesn't show for WUBI ime?

    Please, leave the IME alone.

    I've not seen a setting for not including the original message, but if you're holding the delete key down to delete the text letter by letter, there's a quicker way - hold the shift key down, and press the down button until you reach the end, that will
    select all the text, then just press delete once.

    Not just possible, but a built-in feature of Windows. It's called 'Sticky Keys' and can be found in:
    Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard

    That’s a keyboard wide feature isn’t it? I only want it for this one key.

    I’ll give it a try and see how it goes. Never used it before.

    Once you turn on Sticky Keys in Settings a host of other options appear. Try various combinations until you find one that suits your needs.

  7. Perhaps the built-in on-screen keyboard has this function?

    It;s a bit cumbersome, but if you open the OnScreen Keyboard and press the Shift key, highlighting it, and type a letter on the OSK or on your keyboard, it will type the letter in Upper Case and then go back to Lower Case for any remaining letters you type. Of course, you could just press the Caps Lock key on your keyboard, type a letter and then turn Caps Lock Off for the remaining letters, just as well.

    Unfortunately there are no good options for this. It’s not that big a deal. Made it all these years without it.
