How to Turn Off Ease of Access Options in Windows Vista


The "Ease of Access Center" is a built-in Microsoft Windows Vista feature that controls accessibility settings and programs. With "Ease of Access," it is easier to see, hear and use the computer. It is designed for people with visual difficulties, hearing loss, discomfort in their hands or arms or reasoning and cognitive issues. However, if you do not need this feature, you can turn it off from the log-on screen. Note that you will need administrative rights to disable "Ease of Access."

  • Restart your computer. Wait until your computer boots and the log-on screen appears.

  • Locate the "Ease of Access" button in the lower left-hand corner of the log-on screen. It should say "Ease of Access" when you hover the mouse over the button.

  • Click the button to launch the "Ease of Access" dialog box.

  • Click to remove the check next to "Hear text on screen read aloud (Narrator)."

  • Remove the check next to "Make items on the screen larger (Magnifier)" by clicking on the check box.

  • Click to remove the check next to "See more contrast in colors (High Contrast)."

  • Remove the check next to "Type without the keyboard (On-Screen keyboard)."

  • Click to remove the check next to "Press keyboard shortcuts one key at a time (Sticky Keys)."

  • Remove the check next to "If I press keys repeatedly, ignore extra presses (Filter Keys)" by clicking in the check box.

  • Click "Apply" followed by "OK." Reboot your computer. You will not find the "Ease of Access" button on your log-on screen.
