  • Overtype highlighted words in Windows XP

    Hi Everyone,

    Something happened to my PC recently, and I am no longer able to overtype highlighted words. This doesn't just affect Word, but everything on my computer. If I highlight my "search keywords" say at a search engine in my browser, and type, the text doesn't get deleted but whatever I type just gets inserted in.

    I am using, Windows XP Pro w/ SP2..

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you,
    Joanne

    Have you tried the INSERT key?

    In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

        Use System Restore and select a Point before this anomaly started.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2
