Character keys are also known as upper-case keys, and they typically include all alphabet keys, generally arranged in the QWERTY configuration with the row of numbers and symbols above the letters, function keys, shift, space, directional keys with arrows, and a number pad located to the right of the keys.

They are used extensively in computer gaming, data entry, word processing, and other tasks that require intensive typing. Full-size keyboards are also used on non-computer devices such as some musical synthesizers, especially for pianos. Some full-size keyboards are designed to turn into an electric drum set with the accompanying drum pads or cymbals added on top of the board for percussion use.

A full-sized keyboard typically refers to a type of computer keyboard that has all alphabet keys, most often arranged in QWERTY configuration. This includes the row of numbers and symbols above the letters, function keys, shift, space key, directional keys with arrows printed on them as well as a number pad located to the right of the alphanumeric keys.

On the other end of the keyboard size spectrum, one will find compact-size keyboards, which are often designed to be portable or have collapsible or detachable sections to make them smaller and more easily transportable.

Full-size vs. compact-size keyboards

Compact-size keyboards are typically used with home computers, mobile devices such as tablet computers, subnotebooks, netbooks, and smartphones. They are also often used with small desktop computers where space is at a premium.

Compact-size keyboards are usually much smaller than full-sized keyboards because they lack most keys found on standard full-size models. However, compact-size keyboards can still include alphabetic characters, numerals, and punctuation symbols in addition to modifiers for functions such as entering computer commands and interacting with software programs.

A typical compact-size keyboard may not even have a space bar or an arrow key section.

This article will not mention mini size keyboards, like those found on most phones today, even though they are referred to as “miniature”, because we’re focusing on standard-sized “full” keyboards that anyone would expect to come included with a typical desktop or laptop PC purchase (unless of course, you’re paying for the type of customer service where they install a 3rd party keyboard on your brand new Dell or something).
