    Insert key dead (XP 2000 SP2)

    The Insert / Overtype key on my keyboard is dead, I have viewed the list in "Commands" "All Commands" under "Customise Keyboard" for the relevant command but can't see anything that even resembles "Insert / Overtype text". Thanks in advance. S Fox

    The command is named Overtype, and it is indeed in the All Commands category. In spite of the name its action is to toggle between Insert mode and Overtype mode.

    Cheers Hans. How I missed that is a mystery, ten seconds and the anomaly was rectified; Once again thanks for your concern. S Fox
