Insert may refer to any of the following:
1. In general, the term insert is used to describe placing an object within another object. For example, placing a diskette into a diskette drive could also be phrased as inserting a disk into the computer.
Another example is inserting text, which is moving your text cursor using your arrow keys or mouse and typing one or more letters. For example, you could click anywhere in the following text box, and when you begin typing, you're inserting new text into that text box.
In some programs (not browsers) how text is inserted may depend on the insert mode. For programs that support different insert modes, newly inserted text can either be added to the text around the cursor or overwrite other text.
3. Insert is a file menu and Ribbon section in software that allows the user to add something (e.g., picture) into a document or file. For example, in Microsoft Word, the user may use the Insert tab in the Ribbon to insert a picture of themselves into their document.
