Keyboard control panel

The functions of this old control panel are split between two System Preferences panels. You can find the Key Repeat and Delay Until Repeat controls in the System Preferences→Keyboard & Mouse panel. You switch keyboard layouts (for use with other languages) in the Input Menu pane of the System Preferences→International panel.

The Function Keys feature of the Mac OS 9 Keyboard control panel isn’t in Mac OS X; you can no longer open selected files or programs by pressing the F-keys at the top of your keyboard. (You can, however, now operate menus, open Dock icons, and navigate dialog boxes from the keyboard, as described in Gem in the Rough: Using the Dock or Sidebar for Drag-and-Drop. And you can always use shareware like Keyboard Maestro to map your favorite keystrokes to your favorite programs.)
