Windows: How to double-click on word and only highlight that word?

Posted on


In any textbox or editor of any sort on any version of Windows, if you double-click on a word, it highlights both the word and any space or tab characters that follow it.

What is the use of this feature? How can I change it so that only the word is highlighted?


Use of the feature is “to select the text below the cursor” And I think, when you double click on any word in any textbox or any page, the word gets selected. It doesn’t include the space or tab. May be you are speaking of any editor. Please let us know the exact details. Thanks.
