Windows: Keyboard repeat delay (short)

One of the first few things I do on a new Windows installation is to change the keyboard repeat delay to short. It helps me with arrow navigation or backspace in code or text files, address bar or contents in web browsers etc. Some people get used to pressing a key repeatedly, but I like this one more.

Go to Control Panel > Keyboard > Speed > Character Repeat > Delay

Drag the slider to the right, then give it a test in the area down at the bottom.
