When I press and hold keys, for example "Backspase" It registers only one time and I have to press it repeatedly instead of just holding it. Same with other keys: numerals, space, letters etc. When I'm in Windows everything works normal, but when i log in Linux, this function does not work. I tried switching keyboards and It is all the same.

Make sure keyboard repeat is enabled. You can do with the following command

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.keyboard repeat true
