    Caps Lock 
    Double click the Shift key to lock it. This tip is somewhat intuitive, but I am surprised by the number of people who don't know about it.

    Double Tap Space for a Period and a Space 
    Without a doubt, a period is the most often used piece of punctuation. But the period is on the alternative keyboard, and it’s a bit of a pain to switch back and forth between keyboards continually.
