They are called navigation keys according to their function classification. Now let’s talk about the usage of these keys and let them play their due role.

Use of navigation keys

1. Insert key: it is also abbreviated as the insert key, which is used to change the cursor’s “input mode” to “overwrite mode”. Press the insert key or press Shift + 0 (keypad). “Rewrite mode” is often used when a large paragraph of text has been edited. To rewrite or partially rewrite without completely overthrowing, you can reference the previous text while writing. Because “override mode” is not commonly used, sometimes you press the insert key by mistake to turn on “override mode”. As long as you press the insert key again, the normal “input mode” will be restored.
