Users comments
Logging on to the computer requires pressing on both the Ctrl key and the Alt key with the device; press Delete with the other hand. The control panel in Windows has a setting called sticky keys that makes it possible to press multiple keys simultaneously, see related tip.
The device needs to be adapted for each computer because the distance between the keys varies.
