Finding a keyboard that has all the features you want can be a bit of a task at times, but what do you do when your chosen keyboard does not have a particular, yet useful key built in? Today’s SuperUser Q&A post has the solution to a reader’s keyboard dilemma.
Today’s Question & Answer session comes to us courtesy of SuperUser—a subdivision of Stack Exchange, a community-driven grouping of Q&A web sites.
SuperUser reader Daniel Gjika wants to know how to press “Insert” on a keyboard without an Insert Key:
I have a Dell Dual USB/PS2 Keyboard with a built-in Touchpad Mouse P/N 0TH827 (see image below), but it does not have an Insert Key. Is there another way to press “Insert” on my keyboard?
How do you press “Insert” on a keyboard without an Insert Key?
SuperUser contributor Run5k has the answer for us:
The 0 Key at the bottom of the number pad on the upper-right corner of your keyboard will function as an Insert Key when Num Lock is turned off. That is why it is labeled with both 0 and Ins on the key itself.
Note that the Shift Key can act as a temporary toggle for Num Lock when you press one of the keypad keys (just like the Shift Key acts as a toggle for capital letters). Therefore, when Num Lock is on, pressing Shift + Numpad-0 will function as an Insert Key.
