The best way to type on your Chromebook with touchscreen «Gadget Hacks



Touch typing on a Chromebook is difficult. With screens over seven centimeters, it is hardly possible to type in portrait mode, and landscape mode is a joke. But you don't have to resort to a physical keyboard as there is a better way that works regardless of the screen size.

When using your Chromebook in tablet mode, tap the second button in the menu bar above the keyboard (it looks like a rectangle within another rectangle). This will convert the full-width keyboard into a smaller version, roughly the size of the keyboard on your phone. Use the arrows at the bottom to drag it to any position.

To type even faster, practice sliding typing – it's great with the smaller keyboard. Just drag your finger from the first letter of a word to the second and so on. When you have touched each letter with your finger, let go and the word will be filled. You will be surprised how quickly you will come!
