New Keyboad - how to select complete line

Recommended Posts

Just got a wireless full-size keyboard to use in place of my laptop keyboard.

I'm stumped by a basic keyboard combination. What is the key combination to select the entire line?

Shift + Control + Right Key selects an entire word

Shift + Control + Home Key selects everything above

Shift + Control + End Key selects everything below

Unless a specific program implements a specific way to do it, there is no standard shortcut to select a line. You have to go to the beginning of the line and do Shift+End, or to the end and do Shift+Home.

If the cursor is at the beginning of the line Shift+End selects the line.  So Home followed by Shif+End should do it.

Also, if you triple click the line it will be selected, as long as it is only one line.  Triple click defaults to selecting a paragraph.

For me, triple-clicking selects the entire paragraph.

Yeah, me too.  My bad.  I mostly use triple click to capture a cell in a table, which is one line most of the time.  Some of my not so often used searches which I keep in a table.

IAC, Shift+End still works.  :blush:
