Why are the keys on the keyboard arranged in the QWERTY sequence?
On the first American typewriters, the keys were usually arranged alphabetically.
Due to the imperfection of the design, pressing adjacent keys often led to pinching and typing errors, which also remained unnoticed by the operator until the carriage was moved to the next line.
Therefore, the designers began to experiment with the separation of frequently occurring letter combinations into different parts of the keyboard in order to increase the productivity of operators.
In 1878, the QWERTY layout was finally formed, placed on the Remington No. 2 car, and has been preserved to this day in almost unchanged form.
