The gameplay is addictive and can keep you entertained for hours on end. It’s easy to pick up but challenging enough to keep you engaged. Whether you’re an experienced gamer or just looking for some nostalgic fun, Pacman 30th Anniversary is definitely worth

Is there a way for a macro to keep being pressed down until you release it like holding down a regular button?

Using a 60% keyboard like Ducky One 2 Mini can be a tricky thing. Due to a limited number of keys, a lot of its functions are performed using shortcuts. A 60% keyboard is definitely a perfect fit for users who love compact and de-cluttered loot on their desks.
