the 1.5u key next to spacebar is the fn key. fn + o, fn + n, and fn + m are print screen, vol down, and vol up respectively for this particular keyboard (magicforce is non-programmable so you are stuck with this layer)
>>60117864
>Isn't that bad for typing?
I don't see why it would be, although they are really hard to not bottom out. my keyboard is just a terrible keyboard functionality wise - blank keycaps, only 68 keys, etc. but i don't think Gateron clear switches contributes to it.

I really like Cherry Greens, I know you get more tactile feedback out of cherry clears but I love the sound they make.

Hoping the rumor of cherry fixing its castings is true, I still like a cherry black and if they can make em as smooth as the gateron then I'm in. Do want to try and get a heaver spring for the stock of cherry blacks I got. Try em lubbed with a heaver spring, for daily use I love a linear switch.

Do wanna try out zeals at some point but God damn they are so pricy

Split is take it or leave it for me. I can see why some like it, but I'm used to typing on normal keyboards.

Put your left hand fingers on asdf and your right hand fingers on jkl;. Note the bumps on F and J to help you find them by touch. Now look down at your hands, go through each key and see what the nearest finger is. For instance Q, A and Z are in easiest reach of your left pinkie.

Now force yourself to type like this for a while. At first you'll be slow as fuck and make tons of typos, but you'll speed up as muscle memory takes over.

>Caps lock is a widely hated key. [1][2] It usually occupies a prominent place between Tab, Shift and A, and is easily engaged by mistake when reaching for A. To avoid this mistake, many keyboards have a stepped caps lock keycap that places a gap between caps lock and the adjacent letter key.
https://deskthority.net/wiki/Caps_lock

so i guess stepped shift etc were just to avoid stabilizers but caps lock was often stepped because of the stupid placement. in modern times caps lock isn't important enough to warrant being placed right next to the a key.

This is true. The actual advantage of a tenkeyless or a 60% + numpad is that you can put the numpad on the left side of your keyboard which requires too much imagination for the average 4chan drone.
