Default Insert key on a macbook?

Hi, I'm sure this has been asked and answered several times over, but I can't find an answer. I've tried using the home key on my keyboard in place of the insert key, but it doesn't work. I've also used it in combo with fn, ctrl, alt, the apple key, and shift. Any working suggestions?

Thank you!

Thank you! I'll admit, it wasn't working for me because I didn't have any of my tools turned on! Oops! Thanks for replying!
