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. 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.
