Here\'s an interesting tip I came across if (like me) you virtually never need to use Word in overwrite mode: paste text with 1 key instead of 2. Here\'s what you do:

1. Click Tools and Options. Go to the Edit tab.

2. Put a checkmark next to \"Use the INS key for paste\" and press OK.

It saves a bit of time!

All the best
