Typing is like writing. Looks like an easy work, but it’s very difficult and annoying if you don’t know the secret. Whoever you are, you need to type fast and accurate while using computer. I have some tips to be a typing master.
- Use all of your fingers.
- You need to know where to place your finger.
- Never see the keyboard while typing. Just remember what finger will type it.
- More practices.
My first tip, use all of your fingers. Yes, you must use them. Don’t use “11 fingers” (your left and right index fingers) to type. You have ten fingers. Use them all. How? You will figure it out in my second tip.
The second tip, you need to know where to place your finger. This picture below shows where your finger should be placed.
If you can’t see the picture, Here are the keys should be pressed by your finger.
Index finger = 4 R F V 5 T G B
Middle finger = 3 E D C
Ring finger = 2 W S X
Little finger = 1 Q A Z ` Tab “Caps Lock” “Left Shift” “Left Ctrl”
Index finger = 6 Y H N 7 U J M
Middle finger = 8 I K ,
Ring finger = 9 O L .
Little finger = – [ ] ‘ / \ = Backspace Enter “Right Shift” “Right Ctrl”
Before start typing, place your fingers in the right place. Notice button F and J in your keyboard. There’s a kern below the letter. That’s the place where your index finger should be. Put your left index finger in F, and your right index finger in J. The rest of your fingers should be:
Left middle finger = D and the right middle finger = K
Left ring finger = S and the right ring finger = L
Left little finger = A and the right little finger = ;
Ctrl – Alt – Shift
To combine keys ctrl, alt or shift with another key, you should notice where’s the key, in the left hand side, or right hand side. For example, to combine Ctrl + L, you should know where’s the position of the L key. From the picture above, we know that L is in the right side. So you must press left Ctrl using your left little finger and press L using right ring finger. Easy right?
The third tip, maybe its a bit hard to do for the beginner. Don’t see your keyboard while typing. How come? You only need discipline. For the first time, you will type slowly. It’s OK. The baby crawl on hands and knees before he/she can stand, walk and run. If you remember where’s the key, it will be so easy to type fast.
My last tip but not the least, more practices. Of course, we know that practice makes perfect. Not only typing, the other skill such as programming, need more and more practices.
