Hello friends, Ive seen my brother typing very fast and He uses all of his fingers in his left and right hand. It is so nice to look at. I tried also using all my fingers in typing but my typing speed becomes slower than the usual that i do. It becomes hard for me to do typing for i am not use to it. I only use my 3 middle fingers of my left and right hand.

Hi Margarit! I don't type fast also and I wish I can in time! I used both hand when I'm typing and like you I also used three middle fingers, but mostly the point finger. I really hope that I can type faster one day. Thanks!

Yes. I think I can classify myself as a typist although it is not really my job classification. I am a teacher but I use computer a lot which made me a good typist. Practice really makes perfect.

yeah it is a good advantage to type so fast for you can save more time and also you can post more. i am practicing right now but it is still very slow in speed and sometimes i forgot to use all for my fingers. Each finger has corresponding letters. thanks for the respond.

I took typing in high school, a long time ago, and so I use all my fingers and the the thumb, mostly for the space bar. I can still type quite fast when I am typing something that is long enough for it to make a difference, but since I don't do a ton of typing I tend to make more mistakes than I used to. Most of the time I notice the mistakes immediately and just backspace to correct them.

hi stealthy, It is a good thing that you utilize all the fingers in typing. I been typing for so long but i am not doing it properly so it hard for me to make it fast and accurate at the same time. thanks for the respond.

hi friend, Typing with both the hands is the right way ,but I type with only one finger on my right hand.I got used to this and am not able to type the other way.People who learnt typing must be doing it with both the hands as we did not learn typing we do it as it is convenient for us.You use three fingers but I use only one finger on my right.I dont use my left hand also.Only my pointing finger on my right hand .I learnt to do it with great speed nowadays after joining mylot. thanks for sharing .happy mylotting.

it depends... i guess for the most part i use most of my fingers. My left hand doesn't really move around on the keyboard but my right one does lol and i'll type with one hand or less fingers if i am doing something. i think i use all my fingers on my left and hand and only three or four on my right.

Yep, redzredula is right. The only way to type quickly is to use all your fingers. It takes a lot of practice, but after a while you get used to it. I also use my thumbs to hit the space bar. It is incredibly important on a pay-per-post website. Two finger typing is just too slow. Invest the time in practicing your typing and it will be well worth your while. Cheers.

I am a two fingers typist but I can type really well. I don't use my left hand very often so my motor skill is not very good. Still I don't make a lot of mistakes when typing.

Well, yeah, I do use all of my fingers when I type. It's the only way I learned to type... when I got my computer my parents bought me typing software and I learned how to type this way immediately, and trust me, once you get it, you will type really quickly :)

Hi rocker21, Have you ever use your thumb finger. My brother use it too. He uses it for space bar. I think your speed becomes more faster if you use all the fingers of your hand. Thanks for the respond.

I am worse than you.I just use only my index fingers on both hands and sometimes the second fingers too.It is because I dont know typing at all.I regret, why I stopped continuing my typing classes in my school days.

Hi my125125, Same here, i am practicing now but i have no patience in it. I still use my three fingers in left and right hand. I always brake the rules in typing. Too bad i guess.

Hello, Margarit. I do use all my fingers. People get impressed when they see me typing. They say they have never seen anything like that. Some say they wanted to be like me at typing. But I don't find it hard, at all. I do use all my fingers and I do not look to the keyboard while typing. It is easy. If you are using a keyboard like mine, all you have to do is place your index fingers in the "f" and in the "j" keys. Each of them has some kind of texture which will allow your fingers to feel it. Place your fingers there. The second finger of each hand goes on the "d" and in the "k". The third, on the "s" and on the "l". The fourth goes on "a" and "ç" (ç in my keyboard). Use your index finger to type the words near J, such as U Y H N M, perhaps even the B. Start by trying to write sentences, no matter how slow you are, but using all of your fingers. "I am trying to write with all my fingers". You press the "I" with your second finger of the right hand. Use your thumb to press space. The "A" pressed by the 4th finger of the left hand, followed by "m", used by your index finger of the right hand. Do not remove any other fingers from the keyboard. You must only move the finger that you are using, the others stay on their keys. Thumb - space. "Tr" with the left index finger. "Y" with your index right finger. "I" with the second finger of the right hand. "N" with the index of the right hand, while the "G" is pressed with your left index. Space - thumb. So, you already have I am trying. I guess you got it. You are already trying. Just keep writing sentences, different sentences every time you try. No matter how slow you are, you will get an incredible speed if you master this skill like that. Respectfully, Munhozmib.
