Windows 7: Any method to highlight multiple text in Windows.

Any method to highlight multiple text in Windows.

In a browser, Ctrl + mouse drag enables highlighting of multiple text on different lines.

But in notepad etc, it doesn't work.

Any help is appreciated

features like that just depend on the application displaying the text - MS Word does what you described too.

Hold down the left button of your mouse and scroll down over the text ... right click to copy, then right click again to paste. This works fine in notepad for me.

I think that the OP means non-contiguous text selections.

As UsernameIssues pointed out, you can do it in Word.

Highlight text
I am working in Microsoft Word and throughout different documents when I highlight text from time to time it will all get deselected and I have to reselect it again. Why is this going on and how can it be fixed? I use a wireless mouse and it uses a USB insert into my laptop. The brand is a Logitech.
