make Word work for you

July 8, 2014

A few tips to help with Word – works with all versions!  Highlighting/selecting text can sometimes be a pain, these shortcuts will make life easier…stuff I thought EVERYONE knew!  I’ve taught basic and intermediate classes…very often the intermediate students are thrilled to learn them:

highlight a word:  double click on it

highlight a paragraph:  triple click in it

highlight a sentence:  put your mouse inside the sentence, hold down control key and left click.

highlight entire document to adjust spacing, font size, color, etc:  CTRL + A (selects all).  (command A on the Mac)

highlight a single line in a paragraph:  put mouse to the left of the line, you get a right pointing arrow.  click once.

highlight multiple ranges in a document:  select first range of text.  Hold down CTRL key and highlight second range.  Repeat this step.
