While typing, keep in mind the below tips:

Hold your left hand 4 fingers (excluding the thumb) on keys “A”,” S”,” D”,” F”, keep space for one key “G” and then keep our right hand 4 fingers on “H’,” J’,”k”,” L”.

Keep both the thumb to press space. This finger arrangement is an idle arrangement to enhance your typing skills

Keep right hand 4 fingers to hit numeric keys “6,7,8,9,0 “ and upper row in keyboard   “Y, U, I, O, P”

3. Eyes on screen: Often people look down at the keyboard and start typing, but these are not symptoms of good typing learners. Looking at the keys and typing will make your speed slow so you need to keep your eyes on the screen while typing. Though in the beginning, you would experience it very difficult and the error percentage will be high but with the time and practice you can have the command over it and you can type without seeing the keys on a keyboard.

Using this technique will not only increase your speed but also typing this way will impress your boss and colleague

4. Body posture: Your complete body posture plays a vital role during typing. Your back part of the body should be properly supported. Keep your shoulders relaxed and in a comfortable position. The important thing is your palm and wrist which should be off the desk while typing. Some people are comfortable to type while their wrist is on the desk.

Your foot position must be planted flat on the floor. Do not sit with a cross leg because it makes an uncomfortable posture. Keep your keyboard at a good elevated point to type.

5. Practice regularly: "Practice makes a man perfect" this proverb is very practical. To master typing skills you need to practice it consistently.

If you need to enhance your typing velocity as fast as possible, you ought to exercise as a whole lot as you may. Try for at least half an hour a day, though you can do it longer if you want to see faster results.

One of the best ways to practice is to keep practicing for the same passage frequently, this will increase your visualization of the impression of keys which will result in less error and fast speed. While practicing ensure the first accuracy instead of speed and try to hold the grip on the keys
