How to delete whole words from Word
In the week of Microsoft Word guides, today it’s time to explain the fastest way to delete words in the Windows tool, instead of deleting characters, which is slow and inefficient.
Delete whole words instead of characters. This seems simple and it is, which is exactly why we want to bring you the guide that you have been wanting to read on the internet for years.
These days we are bringing all kinds of tricks to do in Google Docs, in Microsoft Word and in Microsoft Excel, in order to make your life easier and more comfortable. These tools are part of our daily lives, so mastering them saves a lot of time.
Yesterday we saw how to add new fonts to Google Docs, today it’s time to learn how to delete entire words without having to delete character after character. This way is simple and fast. Once you learn it you won’t hit again by suppressing 32 times in a row to erase the damn word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
- open a document of Microsoft Word.
- Type or paste the textyou were writing
- Click at the end of the word and press CTRL + Delete.
- As you see the word magically disappears.
You just have to click to the right of the word you want to delete and press the CTRL + Back command at the same time. With this trick you can delete all the words, no matter how long they are.
Also, the good thing about this command is that if you want to delete an entire paragraph, a few commands like this would have already solved the problem, which is much faster than erasing letter by letter, since this can be as eternal as it is boring.
We also recommend, if you don’t feel like pressing commands, that you double-click on the word to be deleted and it will be selected in its entirety. Once selected, you will only have to press or Delete or Back. With both we will delete the word without problem.
