What happened to "Double-Click & Drag" to select a range of text?

Mote, Kevin D 1 Reputation point

This functionality has been available for decades in Office tools, but it seems to have vanished in Office 365 (at least in the Teams app). As another user has posted: "Double clicking and then dragging to highlight words is basic Windows Functionality and has been forever."

WHAT HAPPENED? Please bring it back!

    Hi @Mote, Kevin D ,
    The feature is removed from Office 365, in my opinion, you can try to give a feedback to Microsoft. You can go to File- Feedback and send your suggestion to Microsoft:
