Is there a keyboard shortcut for deselecting selected text? Perhaps it also works for deselecting selected items (in Windows Explorer)?
The arrow keys work in some software, but sometimes they also move the text cursor one character left/right. This latter behavior happens when selecting text in Windows Explorer for example.
I would like to have a global shortcut with consistent behavior. Don't bother with AutoHotKey tomfoolery, though. If it isn't built in, then that's just the way it is! (A registry tweak to enable it would be OK, just no external software please.)
