    I bought a new keyboard (Logitech MK235) on which the keys are wide, compared to the distance between them. Thus it happens rather frequently, that I hit a neighbouring key together with the intended one. Both keys get accepted in Windows 10.
    I tried a number of your keyboard settings; "Enable slow keys" helps, of course, but the fastest rate (0.3 sec) is far too slow. For that to be usable you should also introduce 0.1 and 0.03 sec.
    I could imagine, that you have made a S/W feature, which accepts only one of the keystrokes, preferably the most prominent one, when two keystrokes overlap in time. Alternatively: Which only accepts a second keystroke when the first key has been released. But I have not found such features in the W10 settings.
    Can you please help?
    Otherwise I imagine that a keyboard might exist, which has such behaviour a a built-in feature. If so, could you name one?

    No help from me - sorry- But, in commiseration, it is the bugbear of my computer experiences. I have "fat" fingers and the finished product seldom looks like what I intend to type.

    So, shouldn't we form a pressure group to ask Microsoft to do something about it?

    In 40 years in the repair buz, this question (and potential solution) had not occurred to you?
