Viewer Ron sent in the following:  I have chubby fingers and have a hard time selecting text on my smartphone. Any tips?

There are several tricks that make selecting text easier on a smartphone that actually work on your PC, too!

In many mobile apps simply tap a word twice to select it. From there you can easily drag the handles to highlight additional text.

On a PC double click to select a word. Triple click to select a paragraph.

Then you can easily cut, copy, and paste. Or, just begin typing to overwrite the highlighted text. This quick tip works no matter the size of your fingers.
