It is not clear whether the standard areas of a PC keyboard have official names. The following names may be of use:

Alphanumeric cluster
The main block of keys, from the number row down to space bar row, and tab across to enter; 60% keyboards comprise only this one cluster
Function keys
The function keys row along the top (F1–F12)
Navigation cluster
The centre block of keys, used for view navigation and cursor movement
Numeric keypad
Also known as the tenkey; the block of keys omitted from a tenkeyless keyboard
