how to improve my typing skills
    #2718129 - 05/23/04 01:45 PM (13 years, 9 days ago)

I want to learn to use all my fingers properly for typing. I now use 'I don't know how many but not all' fingers :smirk:

Is there a guide or something for 10-finger-typing?

please help me out I want to learn this :laugh:

just keep your fingers on the home keys at all times

left hand:
pinky=a
next one=s
middle=d
index=f

right hand:
index=j
middle=k
next=l
pinky=;

keep them there, thats a good start....

put your index (pointing) fingers on "F" and "J", with the rest of your fingers falling naturally on the letters progressing outwards. So your left hand, from pinky to index will be resting on "asdf" and your right hand, from index to pinky will be resting on "jkl;".

If you reach up and inward with your index fingers you will find you are touching the "T" and "Y" keys (left and right respectively). Your thumbs should be resting on the space bar. The rest is sort of intuitive as to where your fingers go and from there it's nothing but practice practice practice. There are tons of typing tutor programs out there, just google for 'em. Hope that helps.

just place your fingers across the keyboard. left pointer on the f key right pointer on the j key. And practice typing only looking at the screen.

I've tried those typing tutors, but what got my typing really fast was playing online games with people.

:grin: i somehow learned how to touchtype while playing MUDs as a young child... i always pissed off my computer teachers by out-typing them! but now i've gotten a bit screwed up, because i have had to learn how to touch-type on a scandanavian keyboard (with extra letters ?, ?, ?) and a french keyboard (try looking at a french keyboard sometime... it is completely screwy!), and so i always get messed up when typing on an english keyboard now!
