  1. Mouse – Click and drag the mouse to select text.
  2. Shift + Arrow – Hold down Shift and an arrow key on your keyboard. If you hold down, for example, the right arrow key, then Word will select text as you move to the right.
  3. Shift + Ctrl – To select one word at a time, hold down Ctrl and Shift at the same time and also use the left or right arrow keys.
