Instructions and Typing Tips Please follow these simple rules: Place your hands on the keyboard appropriately, so that your left forefinger is on the ‘F’ key, and the right one is on the ‘J’ key. You should feel the bump at the bottom of each of these keys. Try not to look at the keyboard, but look at the screen only. If you are stuck, use the virtual keyboard to find the proper key. If your typing speed is very slow, start from the simplest level, using random words composed of the letters from the Caps Lock row only.
