When people work on a computer, they have to select the text or file/files on the computer so that they can further copy or move or send that text or file/files. For this purpose, most people use mouse dragging. This is the one way of selecting text or files but sometimes it becomes difficult to select text or file by dragging. Because in some cases text moves to another place or some letters of text or files remain unselected. So, to make this process easy, there are some text and file/files selection techniques in computer which are very helpful and time-saving.
