The keyboard, like a typewriter, is used for enteringcharacters (such as letters, numbers and symbols).

-> Keyboard layouts are different.The Qwerty keyboard was designed in 1868 inMilwaukee by Christopher Latham Sholes, whoplaced the keys corresponding to the most commonlyused letter pairs at opposite ends of the keyboard, in

order to prevent the typewriter hammers of the timefrom becoming jammed with one another. This keyboard was f irst sold by the company Remington in1873.

In 1936, August Dvorak (a professor at theUniversity of Washington) created a keyboardwhose keys were arranged solely witheff iciency in mind. The Dvorak keyboardplaced all the vowels of the alphabet and thef ive most common consonants on the central row so they could be easily accessed, whilealso evenly dividing the work between the leftand right hands.

How it works

When a key is pressed, an electrical contact is formed between the row and column.The electric signals are transmitted to a microcontroller, which sends a code (BCD, 

ASCII or Unicode) to the computer describing the character which corresponds tothat key.

Inside the keyboard, there are metallic plate, circuit board (key matrix) andprocessor, which are responsible for transferring information from the keyboard to

the computer.

Types of keyboards

There are four types of keyboards for PCs. The first

three were invented by IBM, while the latter is the result of 

changes made when Microsoft Windows 95 was released. These

are the four kinds of keyboards:

The 83-key keyboard (PC/XT)

The 84-key keyboard (PC/AT)

The 102-key keyboard, called the extended keyboard 

The 105-key Microsoft Windows 95-compatible keyboard.

1) PC/XT keyboards(83 keys)

This was criticised for the arrangement of 





lly the Shift and Enter 



which were too small and poorly placed).No LED indicator.

2) PC/AT keyboards(84 keys)

This keyboard corrected the errors , by resizing the Shift and Enter keys.

Additionally, the keyboard was bidirectional, meaning that it could

display its status using LED indicatorlights

3) Extended keyboards(102 keys)

This new keyboard included different blocks of keys: The f unction keys were moved to

the top of the keyboard, while cursor control keys, represented by arrows, were added

Microsoft Windows-compatible keyboards

These three new keys are, from left to right:The l eft Windows key,The right Windows key

The Appl ication key.

The Escape key is used to cancel the data entry and toterminate the execution of the commands and programs.

The Function keys are numbered F1, F2, F3,....F12. These are programmable keys  used toissue commands. For example, F1 is most often used to access the Help f ile for a program.

The Scroll Lock key is more useful underDOS where pressing it will stop text on the screenfrom scrolling off the top of the screen. This gives you time to read or print it beforecontinuing.

Pause key is little used under Windows. Under DOS it is used to halt actions in

progress, often so that messages on the screen can be read before they scroll off 

the screen.




Tab key is used in documents to move the cursor over to the right to a pre-setpoint.

When the Caps Lock key is on, pressing any alphabetic key will result in an upper case(capital) letter. The number and symbol keys are not affected.


The Shift key is used in combination with the alphabetic keys to get upper case.With a numeric/symbol key, using the Shift key will produce the character at the

top of the key.

The Control key does nothing all by itself. It must be pressed in combination withother keys. When used in combination, the Control key changes the normal effect of akey. Exactly what will happen depends on the software in use at the time.

The letters of the alphabet and some punctuation marks are in these three rows.The order of the keys is called QWERTY from the order of the keys on the top row.

This arrangement of the letters was inherited from the typewriter.

On this row of keys you will see two characters, one at the top of the key and one atthe bottom. The upper character is a symbol and is accessed by holding the Shift

key down while pressing the key. Numbers can also be typed from the NumericKeypad.
