    The "standard" keyboard came with the original IBM PC. This keyboard includes a numeric keypad on the right-hand side and 10 function keys across the top of the keyboard.
    The "extended" keyboard adds the F11 and F12 function keys to the standard keyboard.
    The "expanded" keyboard widens the standard keyboard and reproduces the nonnumeric keys and the cursor keys in the additional space.
