I've been trying to find instructions to disable the insert key in Windows 10 but all the answers are for earlier versions. For example, they require changing "Keyboard layout" in regedit but that entry no longer exists. Can anybody please help? I keep accidentally toggling into "Overwrite mode" every time my fat fingers hit the insert key.
Prior to Win 10 I used to disable the Caps Lock key by a regedit. With Win 10 this was no longer possible (at least for me). However, there is a program called SharpKeys that works well - I disabled the Caps Lock easily. Haven't tried the Insert key however I believe you should be able to do so.I did check and the Insert key is listed under the groups "Special Keys" so it should work fine.
You can find SharpKeys here:
I had the same issue on my windows 10 laptop and here's how I fixed it: SHIFT + INSERT This should disable (or enable) the Insert funcion. Hope this helps!
