- Keyboard Speed
You can adjust several settings to suit your preference:
- Repeat rate: A measure of how many times per second that characters are repeated once you've held down the key long enough to begin repeating letters, numbers, or symbols
- Repeat delay: A measure of how long you must hold down a key before that character repeats
- Cursor blink rate: This setting doesn't affect your typing speed. Rather, it controls how quickly the cursor blinks on and off
- Mouse Keys
Have you ever wondered if there was a way to move your mouse pointer around without using your mouse?

- Click OK, and press the Alt + Shift + Num Lock buttons and you can use your numeric keypad to move your pointer instead of a mouse
