David Fishburn mentioned the two alternatives:
(1) Press v then move cursor for character selection.
(2) Press Ctrl-V (or Ctrl-Q if Ctrl-V used for paste)
then move cursor for block selection.
A third alternative is to press V for line selection.
Like most regulars here I fixed up my vimrc file years ago and
have forgotten exactly what a default Windows install does. The
problem of the selection being lost when moving the cursor is
probably due to settings in vimrc that make Vim's selection work
like Notepad (and other Windows apps). In Notepad, moving the
cursor without holding down Shift removes the selection.
These are the problem lines:
