    Question How do you type numbers? With keypad or top row?

    I've always used the top row, though I'm not very fast at it. sixf00t4's post on the space bar made me wonder about how people type numbers.

    Keypad. Never learned how to type, but had to take 10-key in accounting, so I mastered it.

    depends on what im typing

    word/number combo (passwords or usernames) is top row, numbers only (phone number, zipcode, etc) is number pad

    hmmm....I thought in this forum it wouldn't have to be explained...but ok: First, you take your finger, and apply it on any of the buttons with a number on them, for example a "2". You apply enough pressure until a "click" is heard, DO NOT FORCE PUSH THE KEYS!!!! After the click is heard, you may release the finger from the button. Therefore you have now just typed a number. :-D


    I use both, usually keypad though, especially with cd keys

    If it's just numbers like a registration code, I use the keypad. If it's along with letters, such as typing Windows 98, I use the top row so I don't have to move my hand to the keypad and back.

    Or if I have a beer in one hand.

    Makes it hard to use the number pad. -Otherwise, that`s what I use.

    Top row.

    See, I'm an old fogey: the first computer I had was an XT Kaypro clone. Since it didn't have the extra set of keys for cursors, Insert, Delete and so on, NumLock was off by default. Consequently, the only time you turned it on was to do an actual calculation (or insert ASCII).

    Never have got used to having NumLock on; I still set the BIOS to default NumLock off.

    So why does the num pad on a keyboard start at the bottom,
    while the number pad on a phone starts at the top?

    Just throw in a quik thread crap.

    I had an accounting class in high school but I just never type numbers alone, I'm always typing letters and numbers.
