Mac version of Insert?

Mac Word Filter: Help me turn off the Mac version of the Insert button.

Every now and again, I hit something by accident that makes typing overwrite whatever is in front of my cursor, just like I've hit the Insert button on a PC. (I use a Mac.) The only way I can figure out how to turn it off is to reboot. What key or key combo should I be hitting to go back to normal so when I type, whatever's in front of my cursor gets pushed to the right to make room for the new characters?

At the bottom of the page window, there's a small circular icon and the word OVR. Click on that and you can toggle the overwriting function.
