  1. How to get Insert Key to work


    This has been a constant source of frustration with Microsoft in General and Windows 10 in particular. The insert key no longer toggles between insert and overwrite. Is there a way to get this to work? I have version 1903.

    :)

  2. Insert Key Default

    Hi,

    Additional information will help us to better understand your concern. Please answer the questions below:

    • On what application are you trying to use the Insert Key?
    • Are you referring to Overtype mode in Word?
    • Where are you trying to enable/disable the Insert Key?

  3. Cat Disabled Insert Key

    The cat stepped on some combination of keys that effected the insert command.

    Now if I try to insert text, it just overwrites whatever is already written.

    There's no "insert" key on my keyboard, only a "delete" key located pretty much

    in her favorite path across the keyboard (but only when I'm working--of course!)

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
