Delete Text The Easy Way

This tip applies to almost any document you can edit in Windows.

You probably know how to delete a word by selecting the entire word and pressing Delete. But did you know there is an even faster way?

As you're typing and you need to delete the word to the left of the cursor, simply hold down CTRL and then press the Backspace key. To delete the word to the right of the cursor, hold down CTRL and press the Delete key. That's much easier than having to reach for the mouse each time you need to delete a word.

To quickly delete many words, repeatedly press or hold down the Backspace or Delete key in the above steps.
