Multiple File Select and Select All

Posted: 07-07-2006, 01:10 PM
I'm having the same problem that Krun is (quoted below), and not just in the
download folder. Every folder except the base user folder (and the desktop
oddly) seems to allow only a single file to be selected. I've tried this both
with the regular selection
method, and the new select by checkbox method.

The weirdest part is that in some folders, sometimes, you can multi-select
normally after opening them directly from the start menu. i.e., Pictures,
Documents), but only until you move to another folder that cannot and back.
It appears that there is some strange permission setting that is fluctuating.

In answer to the question(s) you just thought:
* yes, my login is an admin login
* yes, I've tried it with the User Account Control both on and off
* yes, I've tried it by using run as Administrator on Windows Explorer
* I tried it in every folder under C:\ with no luck
* The only folders that ever work properly are my user folder and some of
the folders *directly* under it
* The only time that any of them other than the user folder work correctly
is when you select the folder from the start menu directly or occasionally
(but not consistently) when you use the favorite links list to select it

Not sure what the heck this is, but it is wierd (and annoying .

I haven't experienced this problem. But I'm wondering if you're trying to
select by lassoing? If so, it may be that you're not starting from neutral
territory. What used to be empty space in earlier versions of Windows isn't
empty any more. Even if you just get the mouse pointer near an icon, you
select that icon. And when you drag, you move the icon rather than select
anything. Select All, Ctrl+Click, Shift+Click and the various keyboard
methods should work the same as always. But dragging the mouse pointer
through icons is tricky in Vista.
