Type and Edit Text
You can use Word to quickly type and edit text for a letter, memo, or report. By default, Word is
set to Insert mode; when you start typing, any existing text moves over to accommodate the new
text. If you have set up Word to toggle between Insert mode and Overtype mode, you can press
to switch to Overtype mode. In Overtype mode, the new text overwrites the existing text.
Word makes typing easy; you do not need to worry about when to start a new line within a paragraph
and you can easily start new paragraphs and delete text.
