Default Exact mouse text marking

Hello,
when I want to mark a text with the mouse to copy/delete etc. the exact marking is not possible because Word expands the mark (the word nearby, the space etc.).
Here I marked only one space before "A" and the first letter "A" and Word expands the field - all spaces and the "//" - see att. pic.




How can I force Word to only mark with the mouse exactly what I want to mark? (I do not want to use the arrow keys)
Strangely, I found no solution to this!
Thanks for a hint!
