How to Create an Ergonomic Workstation By Arlinda Lee

Keyboard Locations and Settings Center monitor and keyboard directly in front of you Keyboard should be closer to you to prevent excessive stretching Keyboard should also be slightly below the elbow and at an angle to prevent your wrist from bending Place mouse to side of keyboard so arms are close to body Rest your hands in your lap when your not using them
