Arrow Tricks in Windows Word Processors
Do you ever wonder about all those neat little tricks you can do with your keyboard? There are so many, that if you learned them all, you wouldn't ever have to use a mouse again. Crazy, huh? Well, to get you started, here's a cool little arrow trick to try with word processing programs.
Next time you're using your arrow keys to go from one area of a sentence to another (left and right arrows), hold down your CTRL key. Instead of moving one space at a time, you'll go one word at a time.
If you're using the up and down arrows to go from line to line, holding down the CTRL key will make your cursor jump from paragraph to paragraph (well, from carriage return to carriage return anyway).
One last thing, if you hold down the SHIFT key while you do this (i.e. hold down SHIFT + CTRL at the same time), you select text as you arrow along.
I've tested this in MS Word and Wordpad, but it *should* work no matter what word processing program you use.
