How To Quickly Select Text In Word

You should know by now that you can use your mouse to select text by holding down your left mouse button and dragging your mouse to make a selection. There is, however, a much quicker method to select text using your mouse.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Place your cursor where you would like your selection to begin.
  2. Move your mouse cursor to where you would like your selection to end.
  3. Hold down the Shift key as you click once using your left mouse button.

Multiple clicks of the mouse button can also be used to select text. Double-clicking on a word selects a word, and triple-clicking on a word selects the paragraph in which the word occurs.
