    Default Spacebar = which hand?

    Noticed a few days ago that I always hit the spacebar on my keyboard with the same hand. They teach you to use the thumb, but say either hand will work.

    I use my left hand on the spacebar, even though I'm right-handed. What about you?

    I do it with my right hand.

    Left.

    The right-hand is always heading for the mouse.

    I just checked. It's the right thumb every time.

    (I'm right handed, if it's of any relevance).

    See, my keyboard is pretty old, so I'm trying to use my right hand against my instincts, because the left side of the spacebar is getting worn. In fact, seeing that worn-out mark is what made me think of it in the first place. It's just so habitual after so many years, but I'm kind of trying out ways to make more use of that long key.

    Left thumb, yeah. All the time. It feels unnatural when I try to use my right thumb.

    Right thumb. Which is not ideal since I hit the space bar in the middle and it's quite a stretch with my little finger for the damn enter key. I shall try and train myself to hit it with my left hand. Ugh, took 5 minutes to type that sentence in doing the spaces with my left thumb.

    I am obssessed with efficiency but in this case it is simply that this comes natural to me.
