Is Microsoft Word 2016 acting as though you have accidentally hit the Insert key on your keyboard? You hit Insert again, but the text you type still overwrites instead of inserts text.
There is an option in Word called Overtype Mode that may be causing this problem. You can enable or disable this feature by performing the following steps:
- In Word 2016, click “File” > “Options“.
- Select “Advanced“.
- Under “Editing” options, uncheck the “Use overtype mode” check box.
