I have a large notepad file and want to delete the first half of the data. I am at the midpoint now, the point at which I must do a trick to delete all the data before it. What command can help me do this? If I just do it with the backspace, it will take forever! thanks!
At your mid-position, Hold shift, press page up. It will select starting with your position all the way to the top. then press delete key.
If the last page (top most one will not select), keep pressing shift and use
up-key the select the rest of it.
Crtl+shift home method usually works, but can be bugged in anything is bound to ctrl key.
