Windows Phone keyboard ‘cursor/caret’ – Word Flow | Have a look

Hey! We just moved to , Do visit —>> New Site Address


I am typing my message on messaging , all set ! ready to send the message. going to hit enter – Oh just wait a minute, forgot to add something in between of my text. How to do that.? Any idea? This is what I am going to tell in this post.

We have already covered many new and exciting features of windows phone in my previous post. In case you are curious to know do visit the post here : Windows Phone Features

We can accomplish this task using keyboard CARET or CURSOR. 

Follow these simple & short steps :

To delete some portion of your message :

  • If you want to remove a character , string or a word, just Tap on it and type your desired text or if you simply want to delete – tap the cross marked  key on your phone’s virtual keyboard and you are done.


For Typo follow the step below :

  • Let’s say you have typed “Windws” and you want to correct it by entering “O”, put your finger in  between “d” and “s” , Hold-n-press, you would get the caret, now you can type “o”. What if you placed caret/cursor between “w” and “i” ? No need to worry , drag your finger and leave the caret when it comes in between “d” and “s”  now you can type “o”, as simple as that right.?

Though there is a subtle change in windows phone 8.1. You get a tiny circle below your message area. grab it and move around. What you get is more space to move around and you can see your text easily.

Let me know your experience on using your phone’s keyboard. If you have used old windows phone 7 or windows phone 8 and now you are using windows phone 8.1 let me know which way you like the most. Use the comment section below.
