Effective keyboarding

How can I maintain the right position of my fingers in the keyboard?

Hi Yuvra,

I hope you are having a great day.

A helpful trick for learning home position is to find the small bumps on the ‘f’ and ‘j’ keys. These bumps help you find where to place your pointer fingers each time you reset your hand position. You should be able to move your fingers to the correct spot without even looking at the keyboard.

Hello there, @yuvrajjefferson!

I agree with @ABernales - make the F and J keys your best friends!

Also, touch typing can be taught on any keyboard, QWERTY or otherwise. However, since the core of touch typing is developing muscle memory, mastery on one keyboard will not directly transfer to another as the keys will be placed differently. For this reason, it is important that you use only one keyboard when initially learning typing skills. If you’re often switching between different keyboards, that may be why you’re struggling with your finger placements.

Best of luck! Stick with it!
