    The insert key, when activated, can overtype on top of existing text.
    If you type in the center of the word BACKWARD while the Insert key is inactive, you would get something like this: BACKTOTHEWARD.

    However, if insert is activated, you would get this: BACKTOTHE.
    TOTHE would overtype WARD.

    The End key is more or less obsolete with the advent of the mouse.
    In the stone age, there were no mouses (except in your barn) so End was a convenient way of moving around, lets say, a word document.
    Instead of using the arrow keys to move back and forth through text, you could hit END and it would take you to the end of a sentence.
    CTRL+END would take you to the very end of the entire document.
    Same applies to Home.

    If you ever used an old computer, it would be easier to understand its use.

    I love my End key. If I'm writing a paper and I'm quickly editing and re-doing some work, it's actually quicker to use that and not stuff up my train of thought than using the mouse.

    Maybe that's just me haha

    I gotta ask it then, what IS the point of scroll lock ?

    I like the comment Insert made. "I'm sorry sh*t disappears when I'm pressed"

    the end key is so not obsolete!! lol

    i use it all the time on all those forums that get REALLY long i let the page load and then hit end to take me to the bottom of the page lol. its very convenient.

    but the insert key . . . well i never noticed it until the video lol, but my laptop say "Ins" i thought it was the button i was supposed to push when i saw an illegal here in SD, and you know we get them a lot lol . . . no wonder it never worked when i was at starbucks . . .

    I always use all the keys. In the great majority of instances, keys (and shortcut key combinations) are far more accurate, and faster than a mouse.

    I remember watching an executive scroll to the bottom of a 20 page document by holding the mouse cursor over the 'scroll down' arrow at the bottom of the scroll bar. I wanted to say that this was an idiotic waste of my time, but I also didn't want to get fired.

    I'm continually amazed that even many pro's who are really proficient with some advanced graphic applications (Photoshop, 3DS Max, etc.), still don't know or use shortcut keys for common tasks.
