Home Row in Keyboard

Actually, the middle line on a computer keyboard is called ‘Home Row’. We first start with this line while learning typing. In this line you get buttons of letters A, S, D, F, G, H, J, K and L. If you look carefully, you will find that the buttons F and J are in the centre of the keyboard and are highlighted in these two buttons. This is because when you type, your fingers will know which button they are on. While typing, it is important to keep your eyes on the screen, and these highlights let you know the position of your fingers.
