Alternatively referred to as click-and-drag, drag-select is the process of clicking on a portion of the screen, holding down the mouse button, and dragging the cursor to another location. This action will select everything from the beginning to the end of the drag. For example, clicking here and dragging to here would select the text here and dragging to here. When drag-selecting text vertically, each row of text is highlighted.
