I am using an external Apple keyboard and using Windows 7 in VMWare Fusion.

One of my Windows apps responds to the Insert key. How do I simulate pressing insert on the Apple keyboard ?

I have searched around and the common response is to use the Help key, only my keyboard has no Help key.

I finally found one !

On the numeric keypad, the key for zero sometimes acts like the insert key. This is toggled by another key on the numeric keypad - the one containing the picture of a box with a diagonal cross through it (the numlock key ?).


If you need to remap keys under Windows, I recommend KeyTweak.
