    ***Why is there NO select all***. Wtf. Trying to copy something can be quite challenging. Should a simple select all then copy have been implemented?

    No idea, I dont get why theres no ctrl-copy, ctrl-cut and ctrl-paste, no alt-f4, no ctrl-alt-delete, no ctrl-z and ctrl-y, no ctrl-a, ctrl-s, ctrl-o, no mouse-hover-menu-system for IE10, etcetera.

    I guess its mostly because... you just do things slightly more cumbersome since its touchbased instead of full QWERTY. You mark the first/last word, and drag the marker to the end/start of the text you desire to copy, and thats that.

    Mark->select. Its no harder than mark->longpress->copy compared to mark->ctrl-c, but thats the trade-off when you want a pure touch device. It seems.

    It is harder when doing it on some web sites or forums or even the wpcentral app for the forums. Sometimes when editing,ot quoting you can't scroll down. A select all just makes more sense . If you wanted to copy the test on a site are you gonna scroll the whole page ? Wouldn't selecting all just be more efficient ?

    Sure, but loads of things would be crazy efficient as well. Making IE10 so that it lets you scroll down would be a much smoother fix, wouldnt you say?

    Iunno, all touchphones lack functionality. select all is just one of many :| .
