If you are seeing a pop up like the one in the screen below, don’t worry! You are doing everything correctly, but just need to make a few changes to your typing. The Timer Timeout is a feature your instructor has enabled to ensure you are typing until the timer runs out and to keep you from hunting and pecking. If you reach the end of the timing before the timer runs out, just hit the Enter key and start over again from the beginning! For more information, continue reading below.
The Timer Timeout feature was enabled by your instructor to accomplish two things: to keep you on task and to stop you from hunting and pecking.
If you reach the end of a timing before the timer runs out, just hit Enter and start over again from the beginning. Continue typing at all times until the timer runs out.
If you are hunting and pecking, you are often times pausing to search for keys. Pausing for too long will cause the Timing Reset popup to appear. The only fix for this is to STOP hunting and pecking. Slow down, repeat the lessons several times, and learn where the keys are. Eventually, your speed will pick back up and you will be typing faster than ever before!
