Vintage Mode will start in INSERT MODE by default instead of COMMAND MODE; to change this behavior, we'll need to open up user settings again by going to Preferences | Settings–User and then adding the following code:

Don't worry if you are still confused about Insert Mode and Command Mode by the end of this chapter, you will understand it all.
