I'd really like to learn how to properly touch type. Anyone here who can touch type, did you find a particular software very useful, or did you just keep practising with no software?

Do a Google search for "learn to type" and you will find several programs. One is:

While you can certainly learn to touch-type on your own just by experience, you will have better luck using any of the free applications available. These will increase your typing speed and significantly reduce typing errors, and you will learn much faster using them.

Almost any program for touch typing will set you up with the basics - then it's just practice, practice, practice until you get it right! My handiest keystroke is the "Backspace" key - it lets me easily fix my typos while typing! :thumbsup:
