Do you have to look at your keyboard while you're typing?

For letters A-Z, no. Those are down to an art. For passwords, I don't really even think, it's more of an impulse. As for numbers, non relation to my password, yes. Numbers have been a challenge for me all along. I have all of the commands down as well (Ex: Ctrl C = Copy). I never use any of the F1-F12 keys. Does anyone ever use any of them?

There are times that I have to look at the keyboard when I am typing. But just like you, most of the time I do not look at the keyboard anymore. The thing is, I have typing class when I was in high school. I also had several units of typing class during my college days upon taking up my accountancy course. I guess I am very much used to typing and is quite familiar with the home keys already. That is why, I can easily type without looking at the keyboard.

Hey, No I don't look at the keyboard when I am typing. The room could be all black and I would still be able to type good. You just need to learn how to touch-type, after a few months you will be all good. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!

Sometimes I look on the keyboard sometimes not. When I am typing something very important like communication and need to be done right away, I don't want to look on the keyboard and just keep on typing, there are some mistakes but very few. I think when we are working on the computer for so long we got to memorize the keyboard in the long run.

When it comes to the letters I don't but the numbers, yes I do. I sometimes put my fingers on the wrong keys so my words end up looking like no words at all, just a jumbled up mess. I am really enjoying typing in here as it is someting I have always wanted to do. I just need to make sure I have my fingers on the right keys before I start. Have a great day, and happy mylotting.

yes, after some years playing with the keyboard makes you familiar with the layout and could typing without seeing. But, sometime I do look at the keyboard when making mistake or just to make sure it is the right key to push. But, mostly I doesn't need to look at my keyboard. BR.b

I sometimes have to look at the keyboard for the either hard to reach keys or keys i rarely use when i type. But i try not to look at the keyboard most of the time. I'm getting much better at not looking at it now.
