TTT: The Insert Key

Tuesday’s Technology Tip
Little ‘bytes’ of information to hopefully make your computing life easier

If you have ever found yourself typing, and suddenly realized that what you were typing was replacing the text in your document, the culprit is most likely the Insert key. This happens most frequently in email or Word, and happens if you accidentally tap the Insert key (located above the Delete key). Simply tap the Insert key again, and all should be good again.

FYI, in Word, this is called overtype – there is a spot at the bottom of a Word document window with the letters OVR – indicating if overtype is turned off or on.
