How to Choose a Keyboard Knob
Keyboard knobs are often shaped like a gear, with a notch at the top and teeth at the bottom. The teeth are what actuate the button you choose to press. Different manufacturers use different types of gear and teeth, so it’s important to find out what kind works best with your specific keyboard. On most keyboards, the top row of keys is the Z-shaped row. Below that is the function row, which might have function keys or special keys designed to control different applications. On many keyboards, the top row is also connected to the bottom row via a gear. You’ll usually find the stem of the gear nearest the key you’re pressing. To get the best feel for the key you’re pressing, rest your finger on the gear stem. If you can, keep your hand on the gear that’s nearest the key you’re trying to press. This will give you a better idea of what feel is best for that key.
The Best Keyboard Knob for (Almost) Any Key
The best keyboard knobs are those that work with a wide range of keys. These are the best for keys that are underpowered or have bad tactile feel, or both. Generally speaking, larger keys tend to be softer, so you get a better feel for them, and they make the best key associations. Some keyboards have self-explanation keys, so you can see what key is making that particular sound on that keycap. Others have LED lights to show you which key is being pressed. On the other hand, some keys are so quiet that you might miss the fact that they’re being pressed. These are the best for those quiet keys, or those who want to avoid programming the function keys entirely.
Should you buy Keypad Knob?
The keyboard knobs are an interesting piece of hardware. They allow you to assign different functions to each key, but at the same time, they can become a source of frustration. There are so many different styles and types of buttons that it can be difficult to know which is right for you. Especially if you're not sure where to start.
