Of course you can select several files from a directory by keeping the ‘Ctrl’ key pressed and click with the mouse. But what do you do when one hand is free? This is possible if we can put a small checkbox against each files and folders.
Windows Seven and Vista have this feature. To enable this feature open Windows Explorer with the short-cut key ‘Win + E’.
Click on ‘Organize’ and select ‘Folder and Search Option’. Now from this ‘Folder and Search option’ dialog, go to ‘View’ tab.
Under ‘Advanced settings’ check the option ‘Use Checkboxes to Select Elements’ and click OK to confirm the settings.
Now when you move the mouse over a file or folder, a checkbox appears in the top left corner, check this box to select files or folders
