Those of you who know how to type properly????

Do you find that when you have something in one hand and have to hunt and peck that you have trouble remembering where some of the keys are? I know them just fine when I am typing but ask me to point out a specific key and I really have to think about it, like it is habit as to where to move my fingers, but actually knowing the specific key is something different.

  • I'm fine so long as I'm using my right hand to type because I can actually type almost as fast with just my right hand as I can with both hands. I broke my finger in HS while taking computer science, management, and accounting classes so I spent a fair chunk of time typing with one hand. If I'm using a desktop type keyboard I can actually type faster with one hand than I can with two because I've had a laptop for many years now and it's harder for me to use a desktop keyboard now because I'm used to the flat keyboard. My one handed typing still works just fine on the desktop keyboard however.

  • I'm actually pretty good at hunting and pecking with one hand. I make mistakes like everyone, but I have a quick delete finger ;D

  • Yes, and I also have trouble typing random words. It's like if it's not in a sentance form I can't type it...I suppose it's cause I've been typing for about 30 years now.

  • I do that, too, lol. The other day I was trying to type something quick but I had just picked up my soda. It was like 2 words and after 2 letters I gave up and put the soda down so I could type properly. I even chuckled to myself that it was silly I couldn't type with 1 hand. I taught myself to type in college. I don't hold my hands completely right but it works for me and I type pretty fast except for the number/symbol keys at the top. I have to hit every one of them to find the right one, lol.
