Then I am it the right mode like I press ed ESC. I dont know why this has changed. I dont recall changing anything.

      What DOES happen when you hit ESC in insert mode? ESC is an extremely basic feature and it should always work.

      Unless, of course:
      1. You have an insert-mode mapping for <ESC>
      2. You have the option 'insertmode' set
      3. You are using Vim in "easy mode" (i.e. your Vim is named "evim", or you launch it as "vim -y" or "gvim -y")

      Are any of these true?
