Why do you think that?
There are dozens of keyboard layouts and many languages, even Latin based ones have more characters than the 26 a qwert would refer to.
Hell, Danish has like 4 o's... For a start.

They teach the alphabet in order of importance.

S first, then A, then T etc.

With these letters you can already make a word

I dont think so because they serve different purposes. Its not useful to be able to say qwerty, as you already end up memorizing by muscle memory the locations on a keyboard.

Anybody who can type well never conscientiously thinks about where keys are they just do it.

Being able to speak the letters of the alphabet is entirely different.

The order in which we learn the alphabet is really only a way to make sure we know all the letters. The pattern of having them all laid out helps creates a way to memorize all the letters and not forget any. But the concept of having to have all the letters in a specific order has nothing to do with the letters themselves. Letters aren't like numbers in that numbers actually HAVE to be in a specific order to be sequential. But letters could be taught or learned in literally any order and it wouldn't make a bit of difference.

It would make a difference in the way that learning to type could be easier. The keyboard is the only place I can think of where the order matters.

This is true, however there are other types of keyboards that don't put the letters in the traditional keyboard order. There are some that are actually in alphabetical order. There are some that are completely different. So depending on which keyboard you're using would determine the order you learned the letters to be able to type.

Have you never been to a library or any other place where things are in alphabetical order? Hell, they even use A-Z for the contacts in your phone.

Learning how to type is much much easier than trying to put the letters in a different order.

I know as a child, I was confused looking for the letters on the keyboard as they were not in alphabetical order.

And the order of the alphabet is NOT just to learn all the letters. In this age of technology, people have forgotten how to use glossaries and dictionaries all ready, it appears 😂😂

But then the letters wouldn't match the song. Now I know my QWE's??? Would never work.

You know, that's actually an interesting concept 🤔

no it wouldn't….
