Find the F-Lock button and hit that. It will toggle you between the primary and secondary functions of your F keys.

So basically, hit the F-Lock button, then the INS button.

What is the work of insert key of keyboard.


The insert key is used to toggle between overtype mode and insert mode while typing.

In overtype mode, any letters typed will replace those infront of the cursor.
In insert mode, any letters typed will be inserted where the cursor is. (Useful for if you miss a letter or word out)

My keyboard automatically typing letter z and /////////... continuously even without pressing my keyboard. how can i solve this problem? thanks..


One of two things are happening. Either your keys are stuck due to debris and/or dust on your keyboard or someone has created "hot keys" possibly as a joke and they are typing it. Get a coin and insert it under the key and pull upwards. Keys pop on and off the keyboard. It will not hurt it. Remove both keys and check for dirt and dust under them. If this is not the problem then you have hot keys set. In order to walk you through disengaging them I would need to know your operating system and if removing and cleaning the keys worked first. Please let me know this by going back to your original question posted on fixya and using the comment or reply button.

The insert key does not allow me to type over an existing sentence. Does HP have this functionality?


I was having the same problem on a new HP keyboard. I found a solution for my issue in the WORD 2010 help menu:
"To change the overtype settings so that you can access overtype mode by pressing INSERT, do the following:
  1. Press ALT+F, T to open Word Options.
  2. Press A to select ADVANCED, and then press TAB.
  3. Press ALT+O to move to the Use the Insert key to control overtype mode check box.
  4. Press SPACEBAR to select the check box, and then press ENTER.
To turn Overtype mode on or off, press INSERT."

If you have Word 2007 on your computer, the insert key is controlled in Word. While in Word, left click on the big circle but at the top far left of the menu (next to "home"). A menu box will open. At the bottom of the box is "Word Options", click on that button. In the far left column you will see "Advance", click on that and to the right will be a selection menu. Check the boxes "Use the insert key" and "Use overtype mode". This should work.

Make sure you have selected the right keyboard type and language.
Go to control panel, Regional and language options > and select the appropriate language (for e.g: United States (English), click on Languages Tab and select the Keyboard as English (United States) Keyboard, You should be able to get the "#" by pressing Shift and Number "3"

Alternatively you can use the Virtual keyboard by pressing the Windows button (located next to the Ctrl) and "u" , Or you can type "osk" in Start > Run.


Please get back to me for any further assistance.

Insert or over-type feature


I have the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard and it has a "F lock" key. This key has to be set on "Off" to let it know that I want to use the Print Screen function versus the Insert function on the same key. May be your keyboard is the same way.
