Backspace peculiarities in Word 2002

By colin.mac ·
Hi All

I have a problem within Word 2002, when I click on the backspace button instead of it deleting one character to the left it jumps back to the beginning of the entire word. very frustrating, I have trawled through the options to see if I can resolve the problem by un-checking anything obvious but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running Windows XP PRO on a Dell latitude D400.

Thanks in advance

Check your Ctrl keys. I've had this happen to me before. By holding down the Ctrl-Backspace key at same time you see that effect.

The cursor jumps to the front of the word but doesn't delete the entire word as is what would happen when holding down Ctrl + backspace. so unfortunately its not down to a sticky Ctrl key.
