Why are the ‘A’ to ‘Z’ buttons shuffled without being placed on the keyboard?

When you start using the computer, at first it was difficult to find the letters on the keyboard. It must have taken a long time to write a line while searching for letters.

At that time, you must have been wondering why the letters were not mixed one after the other on the keyboard. How much easier it would be to type if the alphabet was written in ‘A, B, C, D’ instead of moving around But you probably started typing fast on the keyboard.

In this case, you may think that typing the letters on the keyboard back and forth does not cause any problem in typing. However the history of the keyboard is linked to the typewriter. Even before the advent of computer keyboards, QWERTY (starting with Q, W, E, R, T, Y) keyboards have been in vogue.

The typewriter was invented by Christopher Latham Scholes in 1868. He initially made keyboards in the order of ‘A, B, C, D’. But the speed and convenience of typing was not what he had hoped for. In addition to this, there were many other problems due to the ‘keys’ on the keyboard. It was difficult to type ‘A, B, C, D’ on the typewriter because of the keyboard.

The main reason was that the buttons were very close and it was difficult to type. Apart from this, there are some such letters in English, which are used a lot. For example (E, I, S, M). There are also some characters that are rarely used. For example, ‘Z’, ‘X’ etc. In this case, you would have to move your finger across the entire keyboard for the most used letters.

Due to which typing used to be very slow. So after many unsuccessful tests, QWERTY keyboards came into vogue in the 1870s. In which the most used letters are kept close to the finger. The Divorce Model was also developed as another model during these many experimental experiments.

The model was famous not because of the “keys” but because it was named after its inventor, August Divork. However, the keyboard did not stay in the discussion for a long time. Because even if there was no alphabetical order in it, it was not so easy. People liked the ‘Qwerty’ model the most and it became widely used.
