The first commercial typewriter was created in 1868, more than 150 years ago. This invention changed the world and now it’s an essential part of our everyday lives. The world record for typing the English alphabet from A to Z is now 1.36 seconds. Just imagine how much time you could save if you could type just as fast!
Apegeo wants to help you with this matter and discovered 11 hacks that can turn you into the typing guru you’ve always wanted to be.

Assigning keys to different fingers will save you so much time since you won’t be moving your hand too much around the keyboard and the keys will always be easy to reach.
2. Place your left hand over the keys A, S, D, and F.
This will help you reach the keys on the left side of the keyboard easily without moving your hand too much.
3. Place your right hand over the keys J, K, L, and ;.
This will help you reach the keys on the right side of the keyboard easily without moving your hand too much.
4. Use all 10 fingers.
Using all 10 fingers will allow you to type faster, since you will be able to keep your palms in the same position and only move your fingers.
5. Slide your fingers across the keyboard.
Sliding your fingers across the keyboard, instead of lifting them to reach the keys, will help you finish your sentences quicker.
6. Use your thumbs to press the space bar.
Thumbs should only be used on the space bar and should always be on top of it, so you are always ready to use it.
