Insert or over-type feature

I would appreciate getting advice as to how I can use the Insert feature. My Logitech keyboard has Insert and a line under it and Print Screen below the line. I have tried using it with the Shift, Alt as wel as control button alternately besides just Insert by itself but have had no luck.

If someone could write back and instruct me about the Insert feature I would appreciate your help.

    does the Insert text appear in a different colour? For example, if its in blue, you may need to press the Fn key (if there is one, similar to laptops). Do you have the part number of the keyboard?

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.

I found out the 'solution'. The "F-Lock" button must be pushed to access those extra 'functions' on the those three keys. However, depending on the application you are using (in my case a 3270 Emulator), that disables the Function Keys. So I render 12 keys useless to get one key back.... yuck.

I have an ex100 keyboard, and it doesn't have an insert key, so I am overwriting by mistake. How do I fix this?

look just after the F12 key, there should be an insert key on that model keyboard, may be hard to spot or in a different colour writing.
If you still cant find it, use the on screen keyboard's insert key

1. Click on Start and click on "Run"

2. Type osk and click OK.

3. You will see the On Screen Keyboard (OSK)

Unplug the USB (or PS/2) plug for a couple of seconds and reconnect them. That worked for me when this happened on my older Logitech keyboard.

Logitech 4 button trackball,

I love this trackball mouse, yet they are very sensitive to wear and trash that causes them to fail. Wal-Mart sells great ones like the Logitech LX3 optical mouse that are not as sensitive and have more features

Help with my keyboard connection

The keyboard must still be connected to the back of the computer. The keyboard is only wireless to the transmitter. Check line of sight to transmitter. Double check all connections (wires) to the computer. Unless something is damage most all wireless keyb are quite reliable.
