Is there a way to enable StickyKeys support for the keyboard shortcuts I use?

If a multi-key keyboard shortcut that you use does not work with the "StickyKeys" accessibility option in Windows, the following steps can be used to enable StickyKeys support for it.
Select "Help | Command Names" from HTML-Kit's main menu. Find the Command Name for the particular command that you would like to enable StickyKeys support. Secondly, add a shortcut for it under "Tools | Customize | Keyboard Shortcuts".
For example, MFileOpen is the Command Name assigned to the "Ctrl+O" keyboard shortcut. StickyKeys support for it can be enabled as follows. If a "Key already defined" prompt appears, you can overwrite it or assign a different key combination.
  • Select "Tools | Customize | Customize Keyboard Shortcuts" from the main menu.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Press a key (such as "Ctrl+O") or pick a key from the drop-down menu under the "Shortcut Key" field.
  • Click the "Menu command" radio button.
  • Select "MFileOpen" from the drop-down list.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Click the "OK" button to close the "Shortcut Key" dialog.
  • Click the "OK" button to close the "Keyboard Shortcuts" customization dialog.
Now it's possible to press and release the "Ctrl" key followed by "O", to invoke the "File Open" dialog when the StickyKeys option is enabled.
StickyKeys is an accessibility option in Windows that can make it easier to invoke multi-key keyboard shortcuts without having to press multiple keys at the same time by making it possible to keep the "Ctrl", "Alt", "Shift" or Windows logo keys active until the next time another keys is pressed.
