Default Re: Random: What finger do you hit the spacebar with?

Right thumb no matter what. I don't even put my left thumb on the keyboard. It just kind of hangs in mid-air slightly above the space bar. If i try to use my left thumb it actually slows me down alot because i have to think about it.



NEXT QUESTION:
When you make a captital 'A' how do you do it. I use my left pinkie for the left shift and my left ring for the A. I believe you are supposed to use the right shift with your right pinkie, but i almost never use the right shift for anything.

Depends.

In games that use the mouse and / or arrow keys, I hit it with my ring, middle and index finger on my left hand. In games that use WASD for arrow keys, my left thumb.

Typing, I usually use my left thumb.

Not to steal a thread, but how do you guys type normally? I just use my index fingers and left middle finger. I still manage to type 120+ WPM with occasional errors, and 80+ with minimal errors.

Not if you type correctly.

And you think the index finger was a problem?

Default Re: Random: What finger do you hit the spacebar with?

I'm typing now and I'm using my left thumb and right index finger. Varies. My right thumb hangs in the air. I'm a 2 finger typer (both index fingers).
