Delete and Word

  Churston 06:48 01 Apr 2004

I use XP Home and MS Office 2000. Now using Word I find that when I highlight a block of text, the delete button refuses to work. The only way that I can delete the text is by using the backspace button, and then only by pressing it twice.

The delete button works fine if I want to delete a single text item.

Does anybody know the answer to this?

Goto Tools / Options and then the General tab. Make sure any items referring to WordPerfect are unticked (there'll probably only be a couple - Help and Navigation)
