Windows 10 Pro / MS Word 2016 Problem Selecting Text

In the last 6 months or so I have been having a problem with 'selecting text' particularly in MS Word 2016.  I'm running Windows 10 Pro.

The problem is that when I click at the beginning of a sentence or word as I drag across it part of what I have dragged across unselects or it 'jumps' to an adjacent line etc.

I have a Logitech M570 Scroll Wheel Mouse but there aren't any properties that I can see that would possible change this behaviour.

It looks to me that to solve this I would need to somehow change the properties that control doing this but I don't know if there are such properties.

Any ideas regarding what I might try?

Microsoft Word is a commercial document editing program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It features numerous text-editing tools for creating richly formatted documents, along with tools for the use of macros in Word documents. Word's native file formats are denoted either by a .doc or .docx file extension. Plugins permitting the Windows versions of Word to read and write formats it does not natively support, such as the OpenDocument format (ODF) are available. Word can import and display images in common bitmap formats such as JPG and GIF. It can also be used to create and display simple line-art.
