 + 
 +**65%** - This is a 60% with arrows and extra navigation keys on the main layer. Just like a 60%, the remaining keys are accessed via layers.  
 + 
 +{{:​knowledge_base:​layouts:​65-1.jpg?​400|}} 
 + 
 +**75%** - The main layer includes the alpha numeric cluster, navigation keys, and f row. This form factor is basically a TKL(tenkeyless) in a condensed form factor.  
 + 
 +{{:​knowledge_base:​layouts:​75.jpg?​400|}} 
 + 
 +**80%/​TKL/​Tenkeyless** - Like the 75%, a TKL includes the alpha numeric cluster, navigation keys, and f row but in a more standard layout. This form factor is a full size without a numpad.

 +**40%** - Due to the nature of its size, a 40% form factor can include varying keys in the main layer. Most common will include the alpha cluster(no numbers) and various mod keys.

 +===== Layout =====  
 + 
 +Different layouts can be used on 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL, and full-size keyboards. It is important to understand key units when venturing into different layouts to ensure your key sets have proper coverage [[knowledge_base:​keycap_materials_and_legends|Key Units]]. Please note that many pcbs support various combinations of these layouts so use this as a reference to key placement and size. 
 + 
 +**Standard ANSI** - 6.25u spacebar, 1.25u bottom row, full-size right shift.
