How to Select Text by Letter in Word 2013

When you’re selecting more than a single word in Word 2013, the mouse tends to grab text a full word at a time. If you want Word to select text by characters rather than by words, follow these steps:

1

Choose the Options command from the File tab’s menu.

The Word Options window will appear.

2

Choose Advanced from the list on the left side of the Word Options window.

You will see several Editing Options appear.

3

Under the Editing Options heading, remove the check mark by the item labeled When Selecting Automatically Select Entire Word.

This lets Word know you don’t want the entire word selected.

4

Click OK.

You are done!
