Keyboard or Mouse



My laptop keyboard was replaced a year ago, and now is minus 4 letters.


 So far not a problem, since I touch type, but if my memory goes.. ...

 I have replaced my desk top keyboard three times in 3 years because Bob one finger types and must see the letters.

I use the keyboard strokes instead of the mouse most of the time. Are you keyboard strokes or mouse or both?

All the letters remain on the latest one, but the CTRL key sticks because it is my most used key on the board.



I created today's  graphic with Word Clip art  and PicMonkey.

Word Clip Art is royalty free.

To find Clipart in Word...

Open Word, click on top Tab Insert/ click on Clipart /type what you want in search bar to far right and here is my keyboard I used today.

first....LOVED you fence images =even if you say it's a fence= lol
But the whistling ducks is such an added plus with Ms. T and her whistling ducks on Wednesday each week!!

Now...with the keyboard....I use both the touch keys above AND the keyboard. My problem is the "E" is always being rubbed off since it's used all too often. [30 hits just now]

I've never seemed to have a problem with keyboards. I can only remember buying two in the past 10 or 15 year and I use the computer A LOT in my work. In fact, the only time it gets turned off is when the power goes out or I take a trip. I mouse a lot but use quite a few keyboard strokes with I'm working with Word documents.

Good Morning, Sandra,

I use both the keyboard and the mouse. And after working for 40 years on computers, I do not have to look at the keys to type. But, there are times I make some typos. Have a happy Friday and weekend!

I touch type too my m and n and 1/2 of my c are gone. I guess from typing madi and mom ...and maybe Cecilia so much

Our sapling forest: OH MY WORD if you could see how many we really have.
Bryan started using Round up on them new ones popped up as quickly as he sprayed them. I don't think there is enough round up in the state of NC to take care of this problem. It is not an over statement to say we have many hundreds of them. This was just a small section near the drive way. After the ice storm in Feb. when a pine limb the size of a small tree missed our car by mere inches, nearly every neighbor near our house started having these huge pines cut down. The cutting went on into the spring when the pine pollen was starting all we can figure is seeds were spread in the air during the cutting. I think all the seeds landed in our yard too.

Hugs Madi and Cecilia

Hello Sandy, I also use keyboard strokes and my Fkeys, just old habits that still work for me. I didn't get word software with my laptop (additional $300), so I use Apache Open Office Suite, it is free and available on line. Our humidity has been in the 80 and 90% so everything here in southwest Missouri is sticky. I always enjoy your posts! XxDazee

I have two letters missing - the s and the c - haha my initials. The D and V are going, What is missing on yours?

Rebecca said...

I don't even have a mouse, I type without looking too. I hate when one had gets off and the words are all jumbled.

I use keyboard shortcuts for some things, like cut and paste. The keyboard on my laptop is rarely used because in the study I use the laptop with the lid shut as a "desktop" computer, connected to a separate bigger monitor and a wireless keyboard + a "rollermouse" wrist rest (with the mouse functions in the middle). I have a wireless mouse to the side as well but rarely use that.

I can help with the sticking...canned air...but I can't make the letters reappear. White paint and a tooth pick?

I always learn something from you! I had a letter out on my last keyboard and liked to drive me nuts. I lived with it for a while, but it got the better of me and I bought a new one. I never thought to do a poster at the time. I like yours.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I use the keyboard and mouse both,but I would also need to see the letters.No one would be able to read what I type otherwise. :)

Andrew Fulton said...

Haha! I just type slowly xx

Ann Thompson said...

I can still see all the letters on my keyboard but even if I couldn't I know where all the keys are. Well I know where the letters are. I don't know all the symbols. I guess I probably use a combination of key strokes and mouse.

Rose said...

I use both mouse and keyboard. I have letters missing from my laptop. I do not know why, but the 'n' always is first to go.

Lois said...

No letters missing for me, but nowadays I use my iPad most of the time.

Betty Manousos said...

i only use the mouse. never used keyboard shortcuts, simply because i don't know all the symbols.

EG CameraGirl said...

I use both. And I have never learned to type without looking. I just cannot do it! ;)

I type using the keyboard which I learned in High School. I'm still pretty fast, I was a secretary for many years. I do of course use a mouse and not the little pad that is on most laptops.

SweetMarie said...

I learned the keyboard in high school on a typewriter. lol I don't know the symbols. :(
