Windows 7 - How to Select Multiple Files

You can of course use keyboard shortcuts to select multiple files for copying, deletion or opening, just as you could with earlier versions of Windows. But Windows 7 also gives you the ability to select multiple files with your mouse by using check boxes.

To select multiple files using only your mouse, just follow these steps.
Open Windows Explorer and click the Organize section
Select Folder and Search Options
Click on the View tab
Go to Advanced Settings and scroll down to the Use Check Boxes to Select Items option
Click OK to confirm your choice
Once that change is made, hovering your mouse over any file in Windows Explorer will display a convenient check box. You can then use that check box to select the file, all without using the keyboard.
