Text Selection Problem

  The Sweeper 15:15 19 Aug 2005

I have a problem in Word. If I want to select text (hold down left mouse button & drag) it drags too fast and I finish up at the bottom of the page and not with the text that I want. Any ideas?

Click at the beginning of the text you want to select.

Scroll down to the bottom of the text that you want to select.

Hold down the Shift key and click.

Your block of text will now be selected.

....why can't I do it the way that I am used to doing? It works on my other PC's.
