How to type very fast??

Tired of typing the keyboard? Feeling as if u wanted to smash them?? Relax..cool down.. Now it's time for u to screw up a lil' bit on the way your pressing the keys..It will just take a minute or two, to read this..........
1. Get in position

-How you sit can affect your typing efficiency.
-A bad position can result in more errors and slower typing.
-Make sure that your keyboard is at a comfortable height for your fingers.
-Sit up straight.
-Put your feet flat on the ground.

2. Put your fingers in the home position

-Place your right index finger on the "J" key and let the other 3 fingers fall naturally onto the "K", "L" and ";" keys. 
-Place your left index finger on the "F" key and let the other 3 finger fall naturally onto the "D", "S", and "A" keys.

-Type each key from left to right: a s d f j k l ;. You shouldn't have to move your fingers from their positions, just press the keys that they are resting on.

-Repeat, but this time capitalize: A S D F J K L :. Use the shift key. Push it by moving only your pinkie and pressing and holding it while pushing the desired letter with your other hand. I.e.: When the letter you would like capitalized is typed with your left hand, you press the right shift key with your right pinkie. When the letter you would like capitalized is typed with your right hand, you press the left shift key with your left pinkie.

-Become familiar with the rest of the alphabet and where it is positioned on the keyboard.

  • "q" "a" and "z" are typed with the pinkie of your left hand, and your pinkie also presses the tab, caps lock, and shift button
  • "w" "s" and "x" are typed with the ring finger of your left hand.
  • "e" "d" and "c" are typed with the middle finger of your left hand.
  • "r" "f" "v" "b" "g" and "t" are typed with the index finger of your left hand.Your thumb should never leave the space bar.
  • "u" "j" "n" "m" "h" and "y" are typed with your index finger of your right hand.
  • "i" "k" and the button the has a "," and a "<" on it are typed with the middle finger of your right hand. 
  • "o" "l" and the button that reads ">" and "." will be typed with your ring finger of the right hand.
  • Your pinkie of your right hand is used for typing: "p", ";", ":", "'", """ (a quotation mark), "/", "?", "[", "{", "]", "}", "\", "", and is used for pressing the shift, enter, and backspace keys.

3. Get into home position and type, "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". 

-This sentence contains every letter in the alphabet. 
-At first, watch your fingers to make sure they go to the right keys and return to home position. 
-Start off slow, then speed up gradually. 
-Start looking away and at your monitor to make sure you're typing the sentence correctly. 
-Correct any mistakes you make, eventually without looking. If you have a hard time not glancing at the keyboard, buy a typing cover if this is hard for you. They are thin rubber skins that stretch over your keyboard.

4. Practice as much as you can. U can try typing the alphabet over & over, or u can make up things to type. You can try typing the first word you think of. The more you practice, the better you'll type!  U can even practice by chatting on IM and chat rooms!Trust me!

Some Exercises to DO!!!

-Repeat each line numerous times, then go to the next one (to begin to "memorize" the keys--then you'll type without looking at your fingers):
  • Pack my box with five dozen liquid diet cans or jugs.
  • Crazy Fredericka bought many very exquisite opal jewels.
  • Sixty zippers were quickly picked from the woven jute bag.
  • Amazingly few discotheques provide jukeboxes.
  • Heavy boxes perform quick waltzes and jigs.
  • Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz.
  • The five boxing wizards jump quickly.
  • How quickly daft jumping zebras vex.
  • Quick zephyrs blow, vexing daft Jim.
  • Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
  • Waltz, nymph, for quick jigs vex Bud.
  • Blowzy night-frumps vex'd Jack Q.
  • Glum Schwartzkopf vex'd by NJ IQ.
