Vim uses modes

There are two main modes that can be used:
Normal mode: this is the mode you use when you are navigating your files, or editing/manipulating them. This is mode for doing anything that does not involve typing new content. Most Vim commands are entered while in this mode.
Insert mode: insert mode allows the input of new text. In this mode, Vim behaves more like a 'normal' text editor, such as Atom or Sublime. Minus the use of a mouse, of course.
