Sometimes you may wish to delete or copy more than one file at a time. To do this you need to select all of the files before you delete or copy the files.
To select a number of adjacent files:
1. In the list of files in the Windows Explorer window, click on the first file of the group you wish to select.
2. Hold down the SHIFT key and click on the last file in the group. All the files between the first and last will also be selected.
To select a number of non-adjacent files:
1. Click on the first file that you wish to select.
2. Hold down the CTRL key and click on each of the other files that you wish to select in turn.
To permanently delete files:
Highlight the files that you wish to delete permanently. Hold down the SHIFT key and press the DELETE key at the same time.
