This typing lesson will teach you how to touch type with the X and Z keys. Both capital and lower-case letters are included in this lesson. To type a capital, hit shift at the same time as you hit the letter. If you already know the keyboard, try our our alphabet drills or misspelled words drills for more relevant practice exercises.
The 'Z' key is below the 'A' key (under your left pinky finger), curl your finger down to hit it. (see keys highlighted below)
The 'X' key is below the 'S' key (under your left ring finger), curl your finger down to hit it. (see keys highlighted below)
Once you learn where these keys are, try to type them without looking at your fingers. To make a capital letter, press the shift key with the pinky finger of your other hand at the same time as you press the letter key. Scroll down if needed to type the following:
When you feel confident you can type these keys without looking, go on to the next lesson.
