How To Turn Typing Into A Nimble Activity?

When it comes to learning new skills, I firmly believe it’s never too late to start. Whether you’re a novice looking to get your typing skills up or an experienced typist looking to improve your speed and accuracy, I’m here to help! You may be thinking “but I know how to type!”, but there is always room for improvement with any skill. If you’ve ever tried typing without looking at your keyboard (or worse, using one of those old-fashioned typewriters) you’ll know what I’m talking about.

You learned to type on QWERTY – see if you can spot it.

QWERTY is a keyboard layout for the Latin alphabet. The name comes from the order of the first six keys on the upper row of the keyboard, from left to right: Q W E R T Y . The QWERTY layout was developed and popularized by Christopher Latham Sholes and students at his workshop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1868. Under this method of typing, we use our fingers to skim through keys. This is called a “touch-typing” method because you don’t need to look down at your keyboard when typing (you can just look at your screen).

Most people’s fingers are dexterous enough that they can do this without looking at their hands or glancing down at their keyboards—you’ve probably done it yourself before! It also makes sense because looking down every few seconds while typing would cause unnecessary eye strain after an extended period of time; therefore, having an efficient touch-typing technique will keep us less fatigued during long typing sessions.

Why does that matter?

Typing is an important skill. It’s used for many jobs and in many situations, so it’s a great thing to have under your belt. You don’t have to be a computer programmer or graphic designer to benefit from being able to type quickly and accurately—anyone who types frequently can benefit from improving their speed and accuracy.

Even if you’ve never thought about how useful typing skills could potentially be, chances are that you’ll encounter them sooner or later in your life. Not only do they allow you to communicate faster than speaking does (which makes them especially useful for people who struggle with speech), but they also help us express ourselves more effectively through written word rather than spoken word alone! This gives us an opportunity.

Here are the two things you must do to improve your typing skills.

There are two things you must do to improve your typing skills.

First, practice typing. You can do this in front of a computer or on paper with pen and pencil—it doesn’t matter where, just as long as you’re practicing!

Second, practice typing without looking at the keyboard. When writing assignments or shooting emails off to friends and family, try using only your fingers to skim through keys and type out what’s in your head without needing any visual cues from a screen or physical object like a keyboard (that’s right: no peeking!). It might seem difficult at first, but I promise that with enough practice it’ll become second nature!

If you’ve been using this method, you need to stop immediately!

If you’ve been using this method, you need to stop immediately! If you’re still uncomfortable with the idea of using your fingers to skim through keys, there are other ways to improve your typing skills.

This will help you better utilize your fingers.

In order to use your fingers, you have to practice using them.
How do you practice using your fingers?
Use a keyboard and type something (like this sentence). Count how many times each finger touches the keys.
Try typing without looking at the keyboard: just feel where each key is with your finger, then touch it gently and move on to the next one. Do this for every key until it becomes second nature.

Here’s how.

The first step to improving your typing is to use your fingers to skim through the keys, pressing the right ones and checking for errors. This can be done by resting the tips of your fingers on top of each key, then tapping with the side of them (not the tip).

Next, you should use all five fingers together, rather than just one or two at a time. For example, try using all five fingers together when pressing down on a keyboard button while they’re touching another key. This will keep you from accidentally pressing other nearby buttons as well as make you more familiar with using both hands together in general!
Finally—and most importantly—you should practice typing without looking at what you’re doing so that it becomes second nature over time!
