Re: Switching from Desktop to Laptop Keyboard

Nah I'm good. The keys really are easier for me to reach with my small ish hands and my long ish fingers. He less hand movement I need to do the better. I've ben on a laptop probably since 2002 and that's all I know. I've always had issues with desktop layouts and never ever learn them.

Same here, my laptop has a keypad also,

If you can get away with just using the desktop layout then stick with that option short term

I never use the dekstop layout and my lpatop has a number pad. I refuse to use the desktop as the keys are easier to reach and the configuration just makes more sense to me. The switch should be easy and the learningn curve is not that hard, if you practice.

           What is the make & model of the laptop?   You should only need to switch to laptop layout if it's a smaller/older laptop that does not have a numberpad as part of the built-in keyboard.  You also have the option of acquiring an external numberpad, and they're cheap and small, if you want some thing portable for travel and happen to have a laptop sans number pad on the keyboard.

The terrible state of public education has paid huge dividends in ignorance.  Huge.  We now have a country that can be told blatant lies — easily checkable, blatant lies — and I’m not talking about the covert workings of the CIA. When we have a terrorist attack, on September 11, 2001 with 19 men — 15 of them are Saudis — and five minutes later the whole country thinks they’re from Iraq — how can you have faith in the public? This is an easily checkable fact. The whole country is like the O.J. Simpson jurors.
