Left-hand typing rules for lesson 4
The character "e" can be typed by pressing the key "E" while holding the keys Alt and Shift. We press the keyboard key "E" by moving the finger from the key "D" to "E".
After typing the letters, the left-hand fingers should naturally return to their base position in the keyboard home row (where the CapsLock key is located).

After typing the letters, the right-hand fingers should naturally return to their base position on the keyboard.
Keyboard layouts play a significant role in the world of typing, and while several different keyboard layouts are available, mastering one is often sufficient. Most of the differences between these layouts pertain to rarely used characters like |, >, or \. If you use a keyboard with a big enter that resides on two keyboard rows (the home row and the one above) or you use a typical US keyboard with a long Enter key that takes a length of two regular keys, it is worth to always choose a keyboard with a layout that suits you most. Switching between layouts, e.g., having a different one at home and work or a different one on a laptop and desktop, may lead you to make typos and slow down your typing. You may be able to choose a typical keyboard for your language when ordering a computer, as in the case of Apple computers. What truly matters is using the correct fingers to press the corresponding keys, no matter your keyboard layout. It's better to look at the keyboard and press each key with the designated finger than to type without looking and risk making numerous errors. Ultimately, it's about efficient and accurate typing, regardless of the keyboard layout.
