Where's My Screwdriver?

I'm seriously considering permanently removing the "insert" key from my keyboard. I don't remember the last time I hit it on purpose.

I *do* remember the last time I hit it accidentally while reaching for the Backspace key, causing me endless misery having to retype the text I just involuntarily typed over.

That would be "every single day".

Does anybody out there use their "insert" key on purpose?

  1. yes. In one of the games I play, the insert key changes the view. I suspect that if their were no insert key, I could remapp this function to one of the other unused keys.

  2. Only in the manner you describe. Regularly.

  3. Tech-recipes.com among other sites have the steps to disable keys, including the insert key. I'm pretty sure this does not include making a key lime pie.
