Multiple File Selection in Windows 7

Satheesh C B | Friday, January 29, 2010 | 0 comments

Whenever you have to select multiple files, you need to keep the [Ctrl] key pressed while clicking on filenames. How many times has it happened to you that you let go of the
[Ctrl] key before selecting another file and your entire selection was lost? It’s irritating when sorting large number of files. Windows 7, however, comes to your rescue with checkboxes that allow you to select files without having to hold the [Ctrl] key.

  • Once in a folder, Click on
  • Organize > Folder and Search Options.
  • Go to the View tab.
  • Under Advanced settings, check the item labeled “Use check boxes to select items”
  • Press Ok and you are done.
