Chapter 19. Managing Hardware > Changing Keyboard Settings

Changing Keyboard Settings

Your keyboard is another one of those wonderful devices that help us communicate with a computer. Keyboards have what is called a tactile feel (the way the keys bounce back when they're pressed). Although you can't control the tactile feel of a keyboard, you can control how the keyboard's repeat functions work through System Preferences. Keyboard shortcuts allow you to quickly perform a task by pressing keys on your keyboard. You can change or disable many global keyboard shortcuts , the same shortcuts in all applications, to avoid conflicts or customize to suit your own work preferences.

Change Keyboard Settings

Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences.

Click the Keyboard & Mouse icon.

Click the Keyboard tab.

Drag the Key Repeat Rate slider to adjust the speed at which a repeating key is typed.

Drag the Delay Until Repeat slider to adjust the length of time you have to hold down a key before it begins repeating.

Click the Close button.
