We've run an article on revving up your computer with the right software configuration, but there's an even more basic way for computer users to increase their speed. Learn to keyboard. Hunting and pecking for the correct keys can take a lot of the joy out of PC applications. If you've never learned to type, consider picking up this useful skill on your own with books from the library and online practice tools.
"Keyboarding is a motor skill," Nansen noted. "It is a matter of training fingers to respond correctly and quickly to press the correct key — kind of like in athletics where you keep doing it over and over again until it becomes habit."
