When you browse thru web sites or office documents using up/down keys, there is a slight .5 second delay before the keystroke fires non-stop.

Is there a way to remove that .5 second delay from OS level?

Since you haven't said, I shall assume Windows:

In Control Panel, open up the Keyboard option and reduce the Repeat Delay setting to be shorter.

Yes, it is a Windows machine (Windows 7). There is still a slight a bit of a delay but this is what i wanted. Thanks, DMA57361! – Sung Jan 11 '11 at 13:20
Still it is too slow, do you know any way of reducing it even more? – mezhaka Dec 5 '13 at 12:43
