    I'd really like to learn to Highlight without the mouse. It would be nice. I know I can do a shift then arrows but what about a whole word then like then doc like if you were to click the mouse progressivly, is this possible?

    Hi jVirus.

    To highlight a word, place the cursor at the beginning of it, press Ctrl and Shift together then use the right arrow to highlight the whole word.

    To highlight a whole row of text, hold the Shift key while pressing the up/down arrows (depending which way you want to highlight).

    To highlight a whole document, press Ctrl +A.

    Hope that helps, :)
