Keyboard Layout

A computer keyboard is very similar to a typewriter, but has a number of additional features:

  • A Control Key (Ctrl) that acts like an additional shift key to change the function of any key.
  • Arrow keys that let you move the cursor
  • A number keypad
  • A delete, backspace and Enter key
  • A row of Function keys labelled F1 through  F11
