How do you turn OFF the
overtype mode in Microsoft Works?
As with virtually all software, the INSERT key (in varying locations on
your keyboard, but often in a group with the HOME, END, and DELETE keys
between the main section and the number keypad) toggles between Insert
and Overtype mode.
In Works 4.5, (and I assume in later versions as well, but I don't have
any handy to check), you can set the options to startup in either
Overtype or Insert mode... click on the Tools menu, then click on the
Options option... you'll see a dialogue box with a number of tabs-- the
first tab, 'Editing' includes an option [ ] Overtype. If that is
checked, Overtype is on by default... click in the box to turn it off.
The option should remain the way you set it...
