So you have the Russian keyboard layout but can't find the right keys? Never fear, there is a way!
Since I'm a total noobie when it comes to the Cyrillic alphabet, I've found that because my keyboard is just a regular boring and useless latin based keyboard, I have no idea where any of the keys are!!!
If this sounds like you too, never fear for if you have Windows I have a neat little trick you can do to see the keys.
Just open up the on-screen keyboard! It's as simple as that!
EDIT: A few other tips from others are; change your desktop background, add stickers to your keyboard and print out the layout.
Also thank you for the lingot!
You can also buy cheap little stickers to put on your keyboard. Only of you're actually really determined to learn the language. Or you could memorise where the Russian keys are as well.
Probably best to learn to type without looking so you can just feel where the keys are so it wont matter what is printed on the keyboard. However it's actually quite hard to type without looking for a character like Э because of how far off from the normal area of the keyboard I am used to typing on it is.
