I always look at my keyboard while I am typing here. But many people don't have to look at the keys. They just type. I wish I can do the same. I need more practice. I am also using my phone and I need to look at keyboard. If not I would make mistakes. Do you loik at the keys when you type here?

I look at the screen so I know I am writing correctly. That is why I like to use laptop and desktop in mylotting because I have a hard time doing it on the phone. I belong to the generation where typing is considered a skill at work and before you are hired for a staff or secretarial position they would test your typing speed and the keys are blank.

So you type without looking at your keyboard. You have this skill. I want to have the same skill. I also think this is a skill, and an useful one.

@florelway I don't know how to practice this. Each time I don't look at the keys I make mistakes.

No, I never look at the keyboard while I type, I learnt to type as a professional typist when I was in school.

Sometimes, but I use mostly my phone and I have to look at the keys as I type. They are way too small and we could easily make a mistake . When using the laptop, I barely look at the keys, it's way easier to type on larger keys.

I am looking at the keys when I am using a laptop or a desktop. I don't know why, but I don't have this skill. I think I need more practice.

@dya80dya well, I don't think you need this skill unless you have a job that requires fast typing .

I am fast with typing on laptop and generally don't look at keyboard unless I make a typo error. I am still getting used to typing on mobile.

@dya80dya Yesterday after reading your post, I tried to type with eyes closed. I could not. So I think though it seems that I do not look at them, I am actually looking at them.

I try to not look and use the proper fingers for each letter but I'm just not getting any better at it.

No I do not usually. But sometimes if I have to type numbers I have to look but not the letters. I learned to type without looking in high school and then business school to sharpen my speed.
