Quick Word Erasing

We all know that the Backspace key will delete one character to the left of the cursor and that the Delete key will delete one character to the right of the cursor.

But… have you ever tried using the Ctrl key in combination with either the Backspace or Delete keys?

No?

Well – then you should because you’re missing out! (OK – maybe it’s not as good as… let’s say ice cream… but it’s certainly a handy thing to know about.)

  • Ctrl + Backspace will delete one word to the left of the cursor.
  • Ctrl + Delete will delete one word to the right of the cursor.

Give it a whirl – you may find it’s the simplest piece of useful information you’ve learned in a long time.
