Default Cursor location on first click -- insertion point

I'm sure this has been asked and answered, but I cannot find the term to use to search for my issue.

When I am working in another app or window, or on a different Word document for that matter, when I click between my document and another window, most applications move the blinking cursor to the location that I click the mouse pointer. But with MS Word, I have to click a SECOND TIME to move the blinking cursor (the insertion point??) to the point where the mouse pointer is.

Can I change that behavior, and how?

I want the insertion point to move to my mouse click location on the FIRST click.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I might add this-- As an example, I use Notepad++ for editing plain text docs, and it always moves the insertion point to the mouse-click location on the first click. This is the behavior I want in MS Word.
