When holding the backspace key, deletion is delayed then deletes strings of words...

My brand new laptop with Windows 10, now erases entire strings of words after a second delay, instead of one character at a time, when I 'hold down' the backspace key. What is happening? Windows up to now used to let me hold down the backspace key to erase one character at a time. Do I have to slow something down in the Control Panel or other? Now I'm wondering if its the app I was using. Maybe I'll wait to hear from others on here, to know if this is a thing or not...
