Questions about typing test

  • How can I pass the lesson with an uppercase letter without Caps Lock?

It is wrong to do these exercises using the Caps Lock key. This is much more convenient, but it won't help you learn to type faster.

You need to use the SHIFT key. The SHIFT key is always pressed by the pinky finger opposite to the one hitting the other key. If you need to, you can learn more about typing.


  • What do the rewards (star, target, lightning) in the exercises mean?

You can get a reward for each exercise:

  • The star is for completing the exercise.
  • The target is for completing the exercise without errors.
  • The lightning is for good speed (it can vary in different exercises).

  • How can I skip a typing exercise or lesson?

There is no way to skip a typing exercise or lesson. You must pass them all to improve your typing speed.

Your muscle memory will improve with each lesson you take, and all ten fingers will know what and where to press the keyboard.
