What options are available for selecting the word at the cursor?

Answer 1. Default Options

Main menu: "Edit | Select | Word" option can be used to select the word at the cursor.
Mouse: Double clicking while the cursor is at the end of a word highlights it.

Answer 2. Keyboard Shortcut

The following steps can be used to assign the "Edit | Select | Word" main menu option to a keyboard shortcut such as "Ctrl+Shift+W".
  • Select "Tools | Customize | Customize Keyboard Shortcuts" from the main menu.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Press a key (such as "Ctrl+Shift+W") or pick a key from the drop-down menu under the "Shortcut Key" field.
  • Click the "Menu command" radio button.
  • Select "MSelectWord" from the drop-down list.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Click the "OK" button to close the "Shortcut Key" dialog.
  • Click the "OK" button to close the "Keyboard Shortcuts" customization dialog.
Pressing "Ctrl+Shift+W" (or the assigned keyboard shortcut) will now invoke the "Edit | Select | Word" main menu option.

Answer 3. Optional Plugin
