Word: Selecting an entire paragraph

Have you ever needed to select an entire paragraph, in a Word document, but messed up the highlighting with the mouse? Well, you’ll still need the mouse for this one, but there is a much simpler method you can use.

Simply click somewhere inside the paragraph 3 times. The entire paragraph should now be selected!

If you would prefer to use the keyboard instead, you can select the current paragraph by pressing Ctrl+Up Arrow (which moves the cursor to the beginning of the paragraph) and then pressing Ctrl+Shift+Down Arrow.

Also, clicking the mouse twice will select the word currently under the mouse pointer.
