- Now let's take a look at how to type…the Y, U, I, O, and P keys with our right hand.…Typing these keys is very similar…to typing the Q, W, E, R, and T keys…that we discussed in the last movie,…but we're just using the opposite hand.…Remember again, once you type a letter,…that finger should always return to the home row.…The Y and U keys are both typed…using our right index finger.…The I key is typed using our right middle finger,…the O key by using our right ring finger,…and the P key by using our right pinky finger.…
Let's go ahead and take a look at an example…of how these keys should be typed.…When I type the Y and U keys,…my finger returns to the home row directly afterward,…and while I'm typing the keys,…my other fingers remain at rest…on their respective home row keys.…The same goes for when I type the I key…with my middle finger.…I type the O key with my ring finger…and the P key using my pinky finger.…
As I mentioned earlier in the course,…the pinky finger usually takes the most practice,…because it's often used less than our other fingers…
