Quick Shortcuts in MS Word (using the mouse!)

Microsoft Word (in Office): I see many people struggle to select words, sentences, or paragraphs for editing in Word. It can be quite easy, and all done with the “clicks” of the mouse. For instance:

  • Select a word: Double click the left mouse button inside the word to be selected
  • Select a sentence: Simple. Hold down the CTRL key, and then select any word in the sentence (single click).
  • Select the whole paragraph: TRIPLE click any word in the paragraph.
These are three quick ways of selecting text, and for a bonus hint:  It often works in other programs, including some editors in Google Chrome!
