I accidentally pressed a combination of keys (I think one of them is Shift key) and my type cursor enters OVR (overwrite) mode instead of INS (insert) mode when selecting previous characters. In this OVR mode I cannot insert words/characters, but instead replace them as I type.

Whatsapp desktop OVR mode

What is the key combination to switch it back to INS mode?

Such behavior is toggled with Insert in many programs. I believe Whatsapp isn't different.
