Use Check Boxes to Select Multiple Files

Most Windows users are used to selecting multiple files for moving, copying, or deleting by using the keyboard and mouse, CTRL+Clicking every single file you want to select. But with Windows 7, there's a way to select multiple files using just your mouse, via check boxes.

Here's how you can do it:

1. In Windows Explorer, click Organize, and then select Folder and Search Options

2. Click the View tab

3. In Advanced Settings, scroll down and check the box next to "Use Check Boxes to Select Items"

4. Click OK

Now, whenever you hover your mouse over a file in Windows Explorer a check box will appear next to it. You can click the check box to select the file. Once you select a file, the checked box will remain next to it and the check box will disappear when you move your mouse away.
