I need to start doing a blog here

There are so many things to learn on this new computer and at Windows 8.  The left little finger shift key for a Capital letter  is so small and I kept touching it and the / \  and stuff on the key too close to it.  So it is annoying to have to go back and fix my print all the time.  It is starting to annoy me.  I put a little felt pad on the left shift key so I can do capitlals without having to keep erasing and re-doing the word.  The felt pad makes it easier for me to stop and assess if I need a capital letter.


  1. Where there is a will, there is a way. Nice fix, with the felt pad...easier to feel. I'm sure it will get easier as you get more used to it!

    1. You are right again of course. The felt pad helps my little finger stretch further to hit the right spot. On all my other computers both the left and right Shift keys were double size. On this one only the right is. I am right handed so the left hand is weaker at re-programming the shift for a capital. My typing of I looks like this \i\iI which I have to erase and start again. I feel blessed that I could just barely afford a new unit, as Old Man's eyes needed my former big screen. I am glad I didn't have to figure out this new computer and Blogger at the same time. I have a list of frustrations to talk to a techy about.

  2. Good idea! I keep pressing Caps Lock (still!) when typing A. And suddenly noticing a whole string of capitalised letters on the screen. I must try the felt pad trick! Good luck with mastering the new computer, Karyn; it's always tricky (like moving to a new social networking site!).
