Help! Stuck in OVR mode running Windows on a Mac in Bootcamp!

Another useful tidbit for those using Windows on a Mac via bootcamp - it's all too easy to get your keyboard stuck in OVR (overwrite mode) rather than the standard INS (insert mode) - the apple keyboard doesn't have a button to switch it out (at least my wee wireless keyboard doesn't) but it is easy to switch back and forth between the two modes but typing the following incantation:

fn + enter

It could possibly be different for different programs but that certainly worked for my in MS Visual Studio

Hope that saves some of you some stress!
