Touch Typing Lesson 4: Capital Letters
Now that you know all the letter keys, let's learn to type them in capitals. To type the capital case of any letter, hold down the shift key while typing the letter key. You will notice there are two shift keys on your keyboard - one on each side. You should press the shift key with the pinky finger of the hand opposite the one you are typing the letter with. This way, you can maintain the correct hand position with your letter typing hand and more easily return to the home row position afterwards.
