Here’s a combination that I use frequently when I find myself in the middle of a line of text and I want to remove the rest:
- Make sure your cursor is to the left of all the text you wish to erase. (Use the left arrow and right arrow key as necessary.)
- Press Shift+End. All the text between your cursor and the end of the line is selected.
- Press the Backspace (or Delete) key. The text is erased.
Much faster than pressing the delete key a bunch of times.
