Hi, I’m Ricky Enger, and today we’ll check out a few tips for finding keys on your computer keyboard faster.
You know, it can be really time consuming and frustrating to hunt and peck your way around the keyboard. Some of the writing on the keys is super hard to see. And some of these keys—what do they even do, besides getting pushed accidentally? So let’s make your keyboard easier to use by identifying placeholders and personalizing it with labels you can feel.
So the third row up from the bottom of the keyboard is called the home row and begins with the letter A. Also, the F and J keys on the home row have a built-in raised spot, so you can tell quickly by feel that you’ve found them.
If there’s a number pad on your keyboard, that number 5 also has a small, raised spot you can feel.
