Windows 10 keyboard delay

This happened this morning. There is a long delay on the keyboard. I have to press and hold a key for a few seconds for it to register.

I have done the following:

1. unplugged the keyboard
2. tried another usb port
3. tried another keyboard
4. uninstalled the keyboard driver then allowed windows to auto discover
5. verified sticky keys was not checked

Also, if I remote into the machine with team viewer my remote keyboard works fine.

I found the solution:

In control panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Set up Repeat and Slow Keys

The setting "How long do you want to hold down a key before your computer accepts the keystroke?"

It was somehow set to 1 second. I changed it back to 0. I did not change this so I think something screwy in Windows 10 made that change.

Thanks for this help.  It works fine except for the following:  I still get a distinct 'click' after each keystroke that wasn't there before and before when I would hold down the BACKSPACE key it would continue backward and delete all content that I had typed.  Now it just deletes the prior character until you lift and hit it again.  So this is a 'workaround' but does not take you completely back to where you were before.
