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?
