Keyboarding - Catto Home Keys in the 2000’s

Hey Now,

I introduce to you the

Catto Home Keys

Keyboarding 101

Catto Home Keys are a new efficient use of home keys. Keyboarding / typing is critical to being productive, efficient every day. In the 2000’s it’s time for a change & not use the same old home row keys. In 1870’s the keyboard layout which many use “QWERTY” (letters below 12345) was designed. When typing words the traditional home keys work well, there is a good amount of time we can use another set of home keys while navigating & completing many tasks daily. So, the home row has been around for ~140 years & I think it’s time to change it due to the fact we use pc’s now not just a type writer.
