When working I often need to select an entire word by put the cursor on that word (variable for e.g.) and it can be mabe via doubleckick.

But I'm interested how can I make a hotkey for this (not to use mouse at all)?

I'm on Windows 7 and using Aptana as IDE.

Does anyone know how to achieve this by configuring Windows or Aptana?

use AutoHotKey - it can automate many tasks

example: the line #a:: send {click 30} will cause the mouse to click 30 times when I press Win+A

Just change the {click 30} to {click 2} and you will able to use it as double click. – avirk Jun 23 '12 at 2:33
