Easy macro tip: Increase your keyboard repeat rate and reduce the repeat delay.

Recommended Posts

I saw this on reddit and wanted to share because it wasn't very popular and I've been liking the change so far.

For those who don't know, an easy way to make macro a little bit faster is by changing your keyboard settings.

  1. Open up the control panel
  2. In the search bar at the top right, search for "keyboard" and open it up.
  3. There are two options called "Repeat delay" and "repeat rate". Slide them all the way to the right.
  4. Done!

This makes it so that when you hold down the key on the keyboard, it sends more inputs per second. It also reduces the amount of time before it starts rapidly sending those signals. This is especially useful for zerg. If you want to spend 40 larvae worth of zerglings, this will greatly reduce the amount of time you need to hold down the key!


  1. Open up Systems preference
  2. Find keyboard (second row) and click on it
  3. There are two sliders, Key repeat rate and delay until repeat. Slide them all the way to the right.
  4. Done!
