How Do I Enable Key Repeat In OS X Mountain Lion?

Question: How Do I Enable Key Repeat In OS X Mountain Lion?

Why can I no longer hold down a key to have it show multiple times in OS X Mountain Lion?

Asked by Clarence P.

Answer:

This is a feature that was first added in OS X Lion. If you would like to disable it just open up the Terminal app and paste in the following:

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

If it doesn’t immediately work, try restarting your Mac.
