QWERTY - a symbolic Latin alphabetical name for typewriters and computers, taken from the first six letters in a row below the row of digits, viewed from the left. The first typewriters used an alphabetical key setting. However, with the fast typing of the neighborhood of frequently used keys caused mutual jamming of the arms with the fonts. In 1878, the first typewriter with a QWERTY keyboard was patented. The creator of the QWERTY layout was American journalist and inventor Christopher Latham Sholes.
