You are correct. It deletes the character the cursor is on. Unclick insert and use the delete key to delete characters after the cursor.

How do I type the copyright icon?


Hi David,

To do that you need to follow the instruction below:
To use the codes:
  • Place your cursor in the location where you wish to insert a special character.
  • Activate the numeric key pad on the right of the keyboard by pressing Num Lock (upper right of keyboard). ...
  • While pressing down the ALT key, type the four-digit code on the numeric key pad at the right edge of the keyboard.
The way I normally do it easily is search Google or Bing for "copyright" and copy the symbol from there and then paste it where it is needed.

Henry.

How do I get swedish letters on an asus keyboard?


You get special characters by using alt codes. That is, you press and hold the "alt" key while entering a 4-digit code using the numeric keypad (or, on a laptop, the keys that serve as a numeric keypad). When you release the alt key the special character appears at the cursor location. This page lists the characters and corresponding code.

If you are using an application like Microsoft Word, there may be an "insert special character" command available. Then you can pick the character from a table instead.

Dear Sir , If you start copying a Class 10 / 11


I understand the pain and how difficult it is to work on a science document!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way if you are using the office suite applications such as Word 2007 or word 2010, you can insert the symbols easily.
To insert a symbol or special character into your document, follow these steps in Word 2007:
1. Position the cursor where you would like to insert the symbol or character
2. Open the Insert ribbon
3. Click Symbol in the Symbol section
4. A menu will appear with a small selection of symbols
5. If you don't see the symbol or character you'd like to insert, click More Symbols
6. Use the controls to select between symbols and special characters. Additional tools on the symbols tab will help you expand or narrow your selection
7. When you find your symbol or special character, click it and then click Insert
8. When you're done, click Close
The symbol or special character will appear at the appropriate place in your document.
Hope this helps!!!

Well, I am helpless regarding developing a keyboard with all those scientific symbols,.LOL

What does the insert key do?


Press and the text you type will over write what ever you have on the screen. This is typically used in most applications to "type over" existing text without moving the other letters/numbers/characters around.

This is my example of how the insert key works.
hit the insert key and position your cursor at the "w" in works.
Now type WOW!!.
You should now have:
This is my example of how the insert key WOW!!.

Clever these programmers. :)

Keep in mind it depends on the application you are running also.
Have fun!

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!
