To modify data, you must tell Office 2010 what you want to change by
selecting it. Then choose a command that changes your data, such as underlining
text or deleting a picture.
To select anything in Office 2010, you can use either the mouse or the
keyboard. Generally, the mouse is faster but takes some time getting used to
coordinating the motion of the mouse with the movement of the mouse
pointer on the screen. The keyboard is slower but much simpler to use.
Selecting data with the mouse
The mouse provides two ways to select data. The first way involves pointing
and dragging the mouse, as shown in Figure 2-1.
1. Point the mouse pointer at the beginning or end of the data you want
2. Hold down the left mouse button and drag (move) the mouse pointer
over the data to select it.
When you drag the mouse, hold down the left mouse button. If you don’t hold
down the left mouse button as you move the mouse, you won’t select any data
when you move the mouse pointer across the screen.
