Hi,
 
I recently bought a new laptop, in which I have Windows 10 running. When I try to select URLs by double-clicking on them, the hypen (-), question mark (?), plus symbol (+) characters act as delimiters, not allowing me to select the full URL.
For example, if open notepad (or even do it on the current text field where I'm typing this message), or other softwares like Dreamweaver, and then double click the following text on the 1st word, it only selects "just-", and not the whole URL like I would like it to do:
just-a-test.com
 
I wanted Windows to behave the same way it did on Windows XP, and simply select the full URL/word/text, by not using hyphens or question marks as delimiters in these double clicking actions.
 
Does anyone know how to solve this?
 
Regards,
 
Guilherme

Maybe resetting Windows fonts return them to normal. From Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts. In the left pane, click Font Settings and then click the Restore Default Font Settings button.

Didn't help at all :/

 

I never even messed up with fonts since I bought this laptop. It's been behaving like this from day 1.

You don't need to mess with default Windows fonts other programs install there own fonts which may be corrupted.
