Sticky keys is a feature on your MacBook that allows you to virtually press and hold down a key without having to actually do it. For example, if you want the Command key pressed while you press another key, the sticky keys feature can help you keep the Command key pressed. This feature helps in various ways – when you have a large shortcut to type, when you need to retype a shortcut multiple times in a row, if you suffer from any disabilities that allows you to use only one hand, etc.
