    An age-old annoyance in every version of Windows:

    WHY does double-clicking on a word in any textbox or similar control also
    highlight the trailing space?? (or any other non alphanumeric character)

    Does anyone ever need that extra unwanted character selected when they want
    to quickly copy or edit a word??? ugh

    quick-highlighting should NOT select any characters that are not part of the
    word you double-click on.

    Thanks, although we're sure MS will file it away as a feature
