Hi Mario,

 

You're not wrong, but you just learned something.  Rather than me explaining, just give the Insert, shift, + arrows keystrokes a try.  I just used the keystroke to copy this word:  explaining

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Mike, I always thought shift+control+right moves to and selected the
next word, shift+control+left arrow moves to and selected the prior
word. and I don't recall the insert/JAWSKey ever being a part of the
command. am I wrong? please explain if I am.

OK surely copy and paste works better than my results so far.  Today I
went to my cell phone carriers web page and looked up my billing info.
I found the amount due and used shift right arrow to select the amount
and then control c to copy the four digit number.  The number I tried to
copy was 51.52.  When I tried to paste the number on another web page to
pay the bill a control V gave the amount 2.00.  Not even close.  Surely
I am doing something wrong to get such poor results.
Thanks
