Keyboard

10 replies 3 views Edited May 12, 2006
Just wondering, why are the letters in the keyboard scattered?, Why isn't in alphabetic order?

Because then there would be no asdf.comSmiley Tongue.

Also, it's pretty much just arranged so that when you're on home row, you can always easily type words quickly, since the letters you use most often are easier to reach. The keys used most often (a,s,d,f,g,e,r, and t) are probably both pretty much on the left side of the keyboard because it makes it easier for righties to use the mouse and type a lot words that use only those keys at the same time...

I have always heard it's because the people that typed in the first days of the typewriter, they typed so fast they jammed the typewriters up. So they mixed the letters to make it a little harder to jam them.

They wanted it to be confusing when you type out words.
