Where does the alphabet start with QWERTY?


The alphabet starts with QWERTY on a typewriter or keyboard where Q-W-E-R-T-Y is the order of the first keys.
The first typewriter was invented by Christopher Latham Sholes and was marketed by the company named Remington Arms in 1873. The action of the type bars in early typewriters was very sluggish and tended to jam frequently.
To solve this problem, Sholes obtained a list of the most common letters used in the English language and changed his keyboard from an alphabetic arrangement to one in which the most common pairs of letters were spread wider apart on the keyboard.
Because the typist at the time used what was known as the "hunt-and-peck" method, Sholes's arrangement increased the time it took for the typist to hit the keys for common two letter combinations long enough to ensure that each type bar had time to fall back sufficiently far to be back in place before the next one came up.
