1720.Select Multiple Files in Windows

I often need to select multiple files in a folder I always have difficulty hold down the CTRL key with one hand and then operating the mouse to select the files I want. Is there another way I can do this?



Ken these are some old school questions. This goes back to Windows 7 and even XP. But the solution is available in all versions.

I like the check box option to select multiple files. Go to Folder Options, the View tab, and look for the Use Check Boxes to select items. This will allow you to select the check box next to the file giving you a very easy way to select multiple items. It is easier and much clearer on what you have selected.

And you don't need to have both hands co-ordinate the movements. We know how difficult this can be for you.
