If you’re a Chromebook user, you probably know that Ctrl-Alt-Delete is not the only key combination you can use to log in to your computer faster and more efficiently. The Chrome OS comes with its own set of keyboard shortcuts, which makes working on this lightweight operating system much easier and faster. These shortcuts are known as Sticky Keys, and they are activated by simultaneously pressing three or more specific keys, including Ctrl, Shift, and Alt. These shortcuts can come in handy while using Google Chrome; they help you navigate through tabs and browser history faster, switch between Chrome windows more conveniently, and so on. However, if at any point you feel like these shortcuts get in the way of your workflow or might get switched on accidentally somewhere down the road – there is an easy way to disable them completely. Keep reading and find out how.
Step 1: Find the Sticky Key That You Want to Turn Off
To start disabling sticky keys, you first need to find the key combination that you want to disable. This can be done in two ways: The first way is to push the Sticky Key combination and see what happens. For example, if you want to disable Ctrl Shift Qq, simply press those keys at the same time and see if your Chromebook takes any action. If it does, then you’ve just found the key combination that you need to disable. The second way is to open up the Chrome OS “settings”. To do this, you can either use the shortcut: Ctrl-Alt-t, or navigate to “settings” manually from the main menu. Once in the settings, navigate to “Accessibility” and select “Keyboard shortcuts” from the list.
Disable Ctrl Shift Qq Chrome OS Shortcut
As you have already discovered in the first step, the shortcut that you must disable is Ctrl Shift Qq. This shortcut is a combination of three keys: Ctrl, Shift, and the Q key on the alphabetic keyboard. To disable this key combination, simply click on the “Disabled” option below the shortcut description and select “Enable” from the drop-down menu. This will disable the shortcut and you can use it as you did before.

This is a really handy shortcut to have, so if you want to disable it, you’ll need to use the “Disable all” option below the shortcut description. When you click on “Disable all”, all the sticky key shortcuts will be disabled, including the task manager shortcut. If you want to selectively disable Ctrl Shift Qq, select “Disabled” from the drop-down menu.

The Sticky Keys feature makes it easier for users with limited mobility to navigate their computers. However, it can also get in the way of someone who likes to use keyboard shortcuts. Luckily, you can disable Sticky Keys on Chrome OS if you want to. There are many ways to do this, and whichever method you choose, the end result is the same: the Sticky Keys feature will be turned off. If you ever want to turn it back on, you can do that easily by following the same steps and selecting “Enable” from the drop-down menu.
