 for home keys
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  home keys
  home row keys
      The eight keys on a typewriter or computer keyboard
     on which a touch-typist positions their eight finger tips when
     starting to type or when resting between words or phrases.
     Typists learn the position of all keys on the keyboard in
     relation to the home keys.
     On a standard english keyboard layout, the home keys are ASDF
     for the left hand and JKL; for the right.  Most keyboards have
     small raised bumps on the left and right index finger keys (F
     and J) so you can find the home keys by touch without looking.
