Selecting Multiple Files At Once
Whatever the reason may be (deleting, moving, copying, etc.), there may come a time when you need to select multiple files at once. Now, there are a many ways to go about selecting multiple files, here are a few simple and popular ones.
- One of the easiest ways to select a group of files (and folders too) is by opening Windows Explorer and holding down the left mouse key. Then, drag the mouse pointer over the group of files you want to select and they will become selected. Note that this method only allows the user to select files and folders that are consecutively arranged.
- Another great way (my personal favourite) to select a group of files and folders is to hold down the Control Key and manually click on the files you want to group together. This method can also be used in conjunction with the first method, if needed, and allows one to select files that aren't consecutively arranged.
