There are several types of Input Device, which are as follows -
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Joystick
  • Trackball
  • Light pen
  • Touch screen
  • Digital Camera
  • Scanner
  • Digitizer Tablet

Keyboard ( Keyboard )
There is a peripheral of key-board computer that is partially like the key board of typewriter. Key-boards are designed to input text and characters. Physically, the computer's keyboard is rectangular. There are about 108 keys. There are several types of keys in the key board like letters, alphabet, number, symbol, function key, Arrow key, and some special types of keys. Are there.

 Based on the keyboard structure, we can divide its keys into six parts-
  1. Alphanumeric Keys
  2. Numeric Keypad
  3. Function Keys
  4. Special Purpose Keys
  5. Modifier Keys
  6. Cursor Keys
Alphanumeric Keys: -  Alphanumeric Keys are located in the center of the keyboard. Alphanumeric Keys contain Alphabets (AZ), Number (0-9), Symbol (@, #, $,%, ^, *, &, +,!, =),. In this section, the keys, symbols, and alphabets apart from the four keys are Tab, Caps, Backspace and Enter for some specific functions.
