Oliver's Tech Tips: Efficiency Tips Volume IV

Oliver has compiled a quick list of tips to help keep you productivity rate high as possible. This volume consists of highlighting and cursor movement tips.

Advanced Selection and Navigation Efficiency Tips

Switching one of your hands between the keyboard and mouse constantly can seriously impede productivity. Here are my favorite ways to highlight/select sections of text using only the keyboard:

SHIFT+End: Highlights everything from your current cursor to the end of the line.

SHIFT+Home: Highlights everything from your current cursor to the beginning of the line.

CTRL+SHIFT+End: Highlights everything from your current cursor to the end of the document.

CTRL+SHIFT+Home: Highlights everything from your current cursor to the beginning of the document.

CTRL+Right/Left Arrow: Move to the right or left one word.

CTRL+SHIFT+Right/Left Arrow: Move to the right or left one word, and highlight/select the word. You can continue holding down CTRL+SHIFT keep tapping the arrow key to highlight the next word in that direction. (You can then use the opposite arrow to deselect the last added word)

CTRL+Up/Down Arrow: Move to the right or left one paragraph.

CTRL+SHIFT+Up/Down Arrow: Works just like CTRL+SHIFT+Right/Left Arrow, but selection is by paragraph, rather than by word.

SHIFT+Up/Down Arrow: Works just like CTRL+SHIFT+Right/Left Arrow, but selection is by line, rather than by word.

SHIFT+Page Up/Page Down: Works just like CTRL+SHIFT+Right/Left Arrow, but selection is by line, rather than by word.

Sometimes using the mouse is faster, here are a few way to make quick selections with the mouse:

Double Click (a word in text document/field): Double clicking a word, will select the word (and the space after immediately following it).

SHIFT+MouseClick: Will highlight/select everything between your cursor, and where you click.

CRTRL+Click or CTRL+Mouse Drag: After highlighting/creating a selection with the mouse, hold down the CTRL key to ADD your new selection to the existing selection. This is most useful when working with lists of folders and files in windows, but will work in most windows programs too.
