MOUSE, SELECTING

When I start scrolling the pointer along text while holding the left-clicker down
the text becomes selected (or hi-lit) as it is supposed to be.

Annoyingly however, whole words become selected even though the pointer
has not been dragged over the entire word.

I know that this is standard default setting but I dislike it. Can I eliminate this
‘entire word’ selection?

I wish to only select the letter that the mouse goes over while moving the pointer.

Thanks
