Examples of "press and hold":

On the Keyboard Properties control (Control Panel > Keyboard) you can set the delay and rate for the Character Repeat function. If you press and hold a key on the keyboard, the character repeats until you release the key.

If you right-click an icon, a context menu opens, showing you the options available to you. You can also press and hold the right mouse button and drag the icon to a different folder.
