Seriously the weirdest and stupidiest thing I have ever asked! In excel, word, & outlook when I highlight a sentence or phrase and hit the backspace button it doesn't erase what I had highlighted. Also if I highlight a phrase and try to type over it it doesn't work either......it works everywhere else just not in excel, word, and outlook....WTF! I tried googlin it, i tried rebooting, I tried punching my keyboard to make sure no keys were stuck but it obviously has to be a setting in the microsoft progs but I have no clue!!! PLEASE HELP!!!
