Hello,

I'm one of those hunt and peck keyboard users.

Is there a guide or how to or software that can help learn to type? Google gives to many. I wanted some people recommendations.

Are there and good resources to learn to use shortcut keys?

Thanks everyone.

I learnt to touch type completly while using MSN a little too much...

I closed my eyes at one point, and could imagine the keys infront of me, and when you can do that, you can start to look away, and you'll gain confidence.

There are many flash games that are built to help you learn though:

Some of these can be rather fun

I don't follow any given rule. Just like with piano playing. I learnt my own way to play stuff. I think it hampers too much...
I don't even hold a pen the same way as everyone else
