Selecting Multiple Files And Folders – A Better Way

Microsoft-Windows

In Windows ( Vista and Windows 7 ) there is a better way to select multiple files and folders rather than the old ” shift ” key.

If you go into your control panel , select folder options , click on View , go to advanced settings , scroll down and place a tick in  ‘ Use check boxes to select items “. 

You will then be able to open a folder up and it will have check marks available to select files. 

This is a great time saver so you can select the files you want or by clicking in the check box at the top you can select all files in the folder.
