    I am currently working with a class of students using a very good online resource.

    All students have plain MACBOOKS - ie no external keyboards.

    The site requires that they press the "insert" key to proceed.

    Anyone know a key combination that can be used for the students to proceed?

    Thanks in advance

    A Google search brought the following to light:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1220 - The MBP layout and its equivalent keys on the windows side.

    There is no way to emulate the "Insert key" except using an external keyboard.

    What kind of software is this you're talking about?

    This same question posted in another forum has elicited the answer ... "the Home key". One other answer suggested the Help key. I'm not familiar with the MB keyboard so can't add anything further.

    Ins Key

    fn + return (enter) works for me as a substitute for the ins key in Windows programs such as MS Project and Mindview. Haven't had a need of ins in other apps so haven't tested.
