Keyboard Shortcuts (Part I)

People often notice that I don't use the mouse as much as most people. Personally I find it much quicker to do a lot of tasks using the keyboard. Therefore I've decided to post a list of keyboard shortcuts from time to time. Hopefully you'll enjoy them and and find them useful like I do.

When editing text:

ctrl + arrow (Left or Right) > Move the insertion point left or right entire words.
ctrl + shift + arrow (Left or Right) > Highlight entire words (left or right of the insertion point).
double click > Highlight an entire word.
triple click > Highlight an entire line (not sentence).
shift + home > Highlight from the insertion point to the start of the line.
shift + end > Highlight from the insertion point to the end of the line.
