Fingers & Keyboard Typing Positions

If you have to deal with numbers repeatingly in your job like prices, accounting or engineering calculations, it can be quite slow to use the top row of the keyboards to type these numbers. An easier and faster method is the Numeric Keypad.

The Number Pad is the separate number section to the right of most keyboards. To use the number pad, please turn on the Num Lock button in the top left corner.

Like a normal keyboard, there is a raised bump on the number 5, indicating the placehold for your middle typing finger (R3). This is the Home Row of the numeric keypad.

NOTE: As the Return Key is quite common as well, we shall for the purpose of the number pad courses, deonote any SPACES as the RETURN / ENTER key (controlled by finger R5).

4 5 6 Enter
R2 R3 R4 R5

Start with your fingers on the Home Row (Row 3) with your middle finger over number 5.

As a guide to where you are currently are, always return to the Row 3 when you are not typing.
