HowTo or Enhancement: Double-Click doesn't include words that contain a dash, and auto-highlighting doesn't highlight all strings that match the selected text

Is there any way to get N++ to, when you doubleclick a word that contains dashes, to select the entire string, the same as it does for underscores?
For example, if I have this text “wildcard-cert-key”, and I doubleclick cert, it only selects cert. I want it to auto-select the entire string “wildcard-cert-key”.
Furthermore, the auto-highlighting of words will, in the above example, highlight “cert” everywhere; however if the entire “wildcard-cert-key” string is manually highlighted, I want that to be highlighted everywhere.
Another Example: If I highlight “ca cert-key”, then everywhere that text string exists should be auto-highlighted.

@KyferEz , Welcome to the Notepad++ Community.
Settings> Preferences > Delimiter, enable
☑Add your character as part of word, and include the hyphen
-(and any other punctuation you want considered part of a “word”).
