The circle enclosed letter indicates the home key. Sit your fingers smoothly on these fingers and take up or down to type any letter from the top or bottom row respectively.

To type a capital letter, hold down the shift key with the pinky of the alternate hand. For instance, hold down the right shift key with right-hand pinky to type capital “S” letter.

Most of the control keys such as control (Ctrl), Shift, BackSpace, Enter, Delete and Shift keys are assigned to the little finger (pinky).
