Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I hit some key and now when I try to insert letters between words instead of inserting it gobbles up the letters ahead of it.


Answers :

Push your "insert" key to toggle this function on or off.
You did not say which program you were using, but in most cases the "Insert" key on your keyboard toggles between the Insert and Overwrite functions of the software. Pressing the Insert key again shoudl fix your problem.
