What's causing overtype mode in Sticky Notes?
Posted on 2014-08-22
When using the Sticky Notes application from the Windows 7 Start > Accessories menu, what would cause it to go into an overtype mode? More importantly, how can I switch it back to its normal non-overtype mode?
For your information, I've got several other apps (Notepad, Excel, Word, Chrome, QuickBooks) open at the same time but the overtyping does not occur anywhere but in Sticky Notes. Also, I have ruled out the "Ins" key as being the culprit. I know that toggles overtype in other applications but it has no effect here.
Finally, closing and restarting the Sticky Notes application fixes things but the problem has occurred several times now so I'm curious to know what's happening.
