Keyboards are external computer hardware similar to a typewriter. They are used to enter text, numbers, characters and give instructions into a PC. Most keyboards are the QWERTY style keyboard which is based on the layout of a typewriter, however, there are different layouts for other countries to support special characters.

  • PC Keyboards consist of 84 – 104 keys and there are 4 types of keys
  • Function Keys (Top Row)
  • Numeric Keys (2nd Row) Numeric keypad is also on the right-hand side
  • Typing Keys (3rd, 4th, 5th row)
  • Control Keys (last row)

How do Keyboards work?

When a key on the keyboard is pressed, an electrical circuit is closed and the keyboard sends a signal to the computer that basically tells whether it is a letter, number or a specific symbol, which we would like to be shown on the screen.
