There will be times when you need to select all of the texts that are available on your computer. This will make things easier for you.

To do that, these are just some of the things that you can do:

• Hold down the CTRL key and press the letter “A” on your keyboard.

• This will select all of the text that is available in the document.

• You may choose to use other commands that will allow you to copy or cut the text into another document or in another web page.

• In order to remember that this is the shortcut, just associate the letter “A” to the word “all.”

Once you remember these things, it will be easier to select the text whenever you need to do so.

The computer has many functions, and many of them are complicated. Most of the time, select all command is reasonably forthright and straightforward to figure out.

These simple steps can help you understand how to enact this function.

• Use the keyboard shortcut.

• You can select every single item by pressing a couple of keys simultaneously.

• Click home in the upper left corner in Windows Explorer.

• Click select all in the select portion of the toolbar at the top.

• Utilize the right-click menu. Right-click dropdown menu and then click select all.

• If, for some reason, you are lacking a right mouse button, use two fingers on your mouse’s trackpad button, or tap the trackpad with two fingers to reveal the dropdown menu.
