How do I learn to type fast without looking at my keyboard?
>>
Literally by typing.
>>
Make an effort to learn it properly (plenty of ressources online) and don't fall back in to old habits because they may be easier.
>>
try it
then keep doing it
>>
>>52880568
Tape your eyes literally shut
>>
>>52880590
This. It's just muscle memory.
>>
>>52880568
practice - maybe get some blanks keycaps if you have a mechanical keyboard

now go away with your stupid questions
>>
>>52881055
This. Its just eye discipline.
>>
>>52880568
this
>>52880691
then blank/erase your keyboard, starting with the most used letters

I had a class in my Jr. High that taught me to type from homerow. I can't even type without setting my hands up on default positions or else I will type off key.

Let that be a heads up to you OP.
>>
What are some good websites or resources for helping how to type better?

learn proper touch typing with home row and everything. do this until you can type at about 50 - 60 wpm. then put stickers on your keys, or buy blank keycaps if you're rich.I did this, AND LOOK AT ME
>>
>>52880568
type with electric dog collar on.
scream each time you mistype.
>>
>>52881675
>104 WPM
hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi...

WPM is a useless statistic, words have varying length.
>>
>>52881675
>30 errors

End your life senpai

>>
>>52881708
the KPM is above the WPM
>>52881716
yeah I made quite a lot of errors, the typing test threw me off a bit, I am used to pressing backspace or just finishing the word when making a mistake during a typing test, the test didn't allow that though.
>>52881724
heh didn't even notice that
>>
>>52881675
>then put stickers on your keys
I never understood why people are hiding the keyboard letters the moment they learn to touch type. Does it look more cool or what?
>>
>>52881821
It forces you to not looking at your keyboard while typing. You should remove the stickers when you can type with your eyes closed.
>>
learn to play dragonforce on guitar then transfer than speed into wizarding the keyboard.

without looking is the first thing you should have learned with a keyboard t b h f a m.
