    Typing in Word (XP)

    Quick question....In my previous versions of Word, whenever I highlighted text, then typed, the highlighted text would be written over. In XP, when I highlight text and type, it simply puts the new text in front of the highlighted text. How do I change this so it will write over the highlighted text? Thanks!

    Wow that was quick, and easy. Thanks! Do you know how to turn off personal menus so that when I click on any of the drop down boxes, ALL of the selections will show? Thanks again.

    Right Click a blank area anywhere on the toolbars or the menu bar, select "Customize", Options Tab, "Always show full menus".
