You can use the computer mouse to select text in Word 2007. All you need to do is click a number of times or use the point-and-drag technique.

1

Point the mouse at the beginning of the text block and click.

Clicking in this step anchors the insertion pointer.

2

Drag the mouse cursor over the text you want to select.

As you drag, text becomes highlighted, or selected.

3

Release the mouse (stop the dragging) to mark the end of the block.

You can follow these steps to select any size of block in your document.
