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.
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.
