Sticky keys is a feature that makes it easy for users who have physical disablilities to press multiple keys at time. This is the only feature which can be used before logging in at logon screen ( as per my knowledge). I repeat this feature can be used at logon screen by pressing shift key five times.
Whenevr we start an application like paint, we are actually running mspaint.exe placed in C:\windows\system32. or command prompt, we are running cmd.exe placed in system32 directory, similary
When we press shift key 5 times or use sticky keys feature, system actually starts the executable file
sethc.exe placed in system32 directory. This means if we rename cmd.exe to sethc.exe and press shift 5 times, system would again start sethc.exe but instead of sticky keys the command prompt will be opened.
But you just cant simply rename it or change system32 files. Follow the video tutorial for that:
