Hi Guys Can any one give me the keyboard Shortcut for highlighting in a Word Document consisting of several pages, the CURRENT page being viewed and not the whole document. Thanks

Im not aware of a keboard shortcut, however failing that you can just set view to 50%, and then select the page by dragging, takes maybe 3 seconds ;-)

Don't know of any keyboard shortcuts but if you put your cursor at the beginning of what you want highlighted, press F8 then put the cursor at the end of where you want highlighted it will all be selected.

Toggle F8 again when you want to switch it off.

Sorry misread you post that will select the whole document
Try highlght one word, first word on the page, hold down the shift key the use down arrow to where you wish to finish the selection.

Thanks Beama but I find when I scroll down it goes so fast , it highlights the next couple of pages as well in a flash . I find Susan's suggestion using F8 easier to control . Thanks all the same and thanks also Susan. to you I appreciate your help
