Speed up the Keystroke on Windows

Windows provide slowly the keystrokes. It's too shock me. That's one reason why i dislike Windows. In this post, get higher keystroke speed.

Introduction

It drains me just being with slowly keystroke of Windows. So i dislike the os. However, I sometimes use the Windows for work, so I'll try to speed-up the keystrokes.

How to setup

Open the Control Panel to speed up keystrokes.

  1. Type Win + R and Type control keyboard on it.

    ./images/figure_11.png

  2. Scrub a slider.

Each item has the following effects.

But, programmer will not be satisfied with the speed even if they set this slider to the maximum value.

Advanced

Therefore, rewrite the registry.

Open the registory editor, then move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER¥Control Panel¥Accessibility¥Keyboard Response.

Sample code is here.

set KEY="HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Accessibility\Keyboard Response"

reg add %KEY% /v AutoRepeatDelay /d 200 /f
reg add %KEY% /v AutoRepeatRate /d 10 /f
reg add %KEY% /v BounceTime /d 0 /f
reg add %KEY% /v DelayBeforeAcceptance /d 0 /f
reg add %KEY% /v Flags /d 59 /f

If you rewrite the registry, reboot your Windows.
