Welcome to FixYa.

As a standard troubleshooting for wireless devices please do the following:
  • Restart your computer.
  • Open note pad and test your keyboard.
  • See if the keyboard functions properly.
  • Open MS word and test your keyboard.
  • See if it functions properly.

When i type a sentence and make a mistake and want to add a new word into my sentence the space bar and any keys i touch type over my existing print. how do i correct this.


You need to toggle your overwrite/insert setting.
All you have to do is hit the "Insert" button on your keyboard. Hitting it once will set your type settings so that new text will be inserted instead of overwriting existing text. Hitting it again will toggle it back.

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.


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.

Letters print out cancelling other words


there is a feature on your computer to switch between "insert" which inserts words at the point of your cursor, without being destructive to other text, and "overwrite" mode, which replaces current words/text with what you type. in Microsoft Word or other word processing programs, you can see a small symbol representing either "INS or OVR" in the bottom status bar. to switch between these modes, press the "Insert" key on your keyboard (also labeled "Ins" on some keyboards), this toggles the insert/overwrite mode back and forth.
Good luck!

if you mean onscreen then it usually applies to MS word where you can double click on it to change from OVR (overwrite) to INS (insert) right-clicking on it may also pull up a menu

Six keyboard keys I don't know how to use


Insert: You press this key to toggle either overwrite mode or insert mode when you are typing documents. In overwrite mode, the characters will be replaced where your cursor is in the middle of a sentence and in insert mode, the characters will be added.
PRT SC: Short for print screen. You press this and the computer will take a snapshot of your computer's screen and copy it to the clipboard. Then you can open up paint or word and press CTRL-V to paste that snapshot of your screen as a picture in your document.
HOME: Takes your cursor to the very beginning of a document in a word processor.
SCROLL: Toggles the scroll function in a document.
PG UP: Moves the document you are looking at up a page.
PAUSE: Will pause a list being sent to your screen from the command window.
DELETE: Will delete whatever you have highlighted on your screen
SYS RQ: Check your notebook's information for this.
END: Will take your cursor to the end of the current line, paragraph, or document.
NUM LK: will turn on the numberlock function, allowing you to use the right side ofyour keyboard like a numberpad.
