Learn How To Triple Mouse Click To Select A Block or Line Of Text

April 18, 2017

There are occasions; when working with text, that we need to copy (or cut) blocks of text (or paragraphs). Typically we will hold down the left mouse button and drag (highlight) the text that we desire to copy (or cut) and then paste the text into another application or another location within the document. This method can sometimes be quite clumsy; especially if it is a large block of text.

An easier and faster method of doing this is simply left mouse click (quickly) 3-times anywhere inside the block of text (or paragraph) that you desire to highlight and copy (or cut). Like magic, the block of text will be highlighted… This trick also works if you want to quickly highlight and copy a web address in your browser’s address bar.

You may have to experiment with this; but, I have found that tip works in just about any application where text is involved (such as your web browser, word processor (such as MS-Word), etc…) and is a good tip to train yourself to use.

BONUS TIP:  Need to copy just a word?  Simply double click anywhere on the word and it will be automatically hightlighted.
