How to Select Multiple Files and Folders in Windows 10 / 8.1 / 7

The Teacher

In Windows, there are several ways to select multiple files and folders.

To select a consecutive group of files and folders, click the first item, then press and hold the shift key, and then click the last item.

To select multiple files and folders, which are near to each other, drag the mouse pointer to draw a rectangular box, around outside of all the items that you want to select.

To select non-continuous files and folders, press and hold down CONTROL key, and then click each item that you wish to select.

To select all files and folders within a window, from the toolbar, click Organize, and then click, Select All. If you want to exclude some files or folders from your selection, hold down CONTROL key, and then click those particular items. You can also use a keyboard shortcut to select all items in a window, which is press and hold CONTROL key, and then press A.

In Windows 7, a new way of selecting files and folders has been introduced. Now, you can select multiple files using Check Boxes, and you don’t need to hold down Shift or Control key. To enable this feature, click Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then click Folder Options, if you are viewing Control Panel in Large Icons view. If you are viewing Control Panel in Category view, then you can click, Appearance and Personalization, and then click Folder Options. Click View tab, scroll down the option list, and select the “Use check boxes to select items” check box, and the click OK.

Now, you can select consecutive or non-consecutive files without holding Shift or Control Keys from keyboard. To clear a selection, click a blank area of the window.

After selecting files or folders, you can run may common commands, like copying, deleting, renaming or printing. Right-click the selected items, and then click the appropriate choice.
