Tricks for Saving Text
(Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP)

Save a word, a paragraph, or a letter with this trick. The shortcut for selecting all the text and graphics in a Windows document is Ctrl+A. But you already knew that, didn't you? You could be more selective with your selection in Microsoft Word.

Tap your F8 key the first time to turn on this feature then move your cursor right or left to select a single character. Now, press F8 a second time to select the entire word. Three taps on F8 selects the sentence. Four F8 punches knocks out the paragraph. If you want the whole document, hit F8 five times.

Reverse the process by keeping the Shift key depressed while tapping F8. When you're done selecting text, just press the ESC key to turn this feature off.
