Default Selecting text and then typing does not delete selected text

I have WordXP. In the older version I could select text that was to be
deleted and and start typing new text, which would delete the old text. It
doesn't work like that any more. I have to select the text, hit delete, and
then type. I like the old way better because it saved a keystroke.

On the Tools menu, click Options. Click the Edit tab. Make sure that
"Typing replaces selection" is checked, and click OK.
