Sometimes if you’re using Notepad++, you need to select text as though it were a column in a spreadsheet. You can do this using the following steps.
- Place your cursor at the beginning position where you want to begin selecting text.
- Press and hold the “Shift” and “Alt” keys on your keyboard.
- Continue holding “Shift” and “Alt” while using the “Down” and “Right” arrow keys on your keyboard to select the text as desired.
