Anyone knows of a way to select all text in a section of a web page (it woud be a DIV in html) without having to select from top to bottom with the mouse? The intent is to click at beginning of the text in the main part of the page (no, adds, no menus, etc) to select and send to TTS app There are ways to do this editing html code, but I am looking for quick select-to-tts (or could be sent to any other app/extension) Thanks

    Have you tried tripple clicking by chance? – NotAdmin Dave Jun 24 '16 at 23:36
  • Thanks, but triple click selects only the current paragraph not all paragraphs in the section – Marco Jun 27 '16 at 17:06
  • It would be great if I could ctrl click a word instead of double clicking it to select it. Also when I hold down ctrl, I want to select a number of whole words. – Anders Lindén Sep 24 '19 at 6:10

Using Windows 10 Pro version 1903 OS Build 18362.xxx Chrome Version 75.0.3770.80

  1. Ctrl-A = Select All (entire webpage)
  2. Ctrl-Shift-End = Select to end from any selected starting point on page
  3. Ctrl-Shift-Home = Select all from selected starting point to top

The easiest way I have found which almost answers your Question:

  • Select the first word or letter or a part of the word where you want to start copying.
  • Scroll down till the place you have to copy.
  • Hold down the Shift key, and click on the ending of the text.

I understand you may have privacy concern, but this extension might be helpful. It's called PrintFriendly. It allows you to do a simple one-click to remove portions yo https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/print-friendly-pdf/ohlencieiipommannpdfcmfdpjjmeolj


How do I select all in Chrome on a web page.

Try Ctrl+A (Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+P to paste, Ctrl+Z to undo, Ctrl+Y to "redo (undo an undo) - probably the most useful keyboard shortcuts.) Edited July 2, 2012 by tengreenfingers
