Shift+End to Delete a Line of Text


Here’s a quick shortcut for anyone who’s found themselves acting like a telegraph operator on their backspace key. You know what I’m talking about. You’ve just finished a line of text, it doesn’t look right, so you want to delete the whole line. “Ratta-tatta-ratta-ratta”, and your finger falls off…

There’s a better way! Simply put your cursor at the beginning of the line you want to delete and press Shift+End. This will cause the whole line to be selected, and all you have to do after that is press delete or backspace to finish the job! The best part is that because your cursor is already at the beginning of the line, all you have to do is type!

Deletion, simplified!
