Windows Vista includes a new method to select files when using explorer.

Checkbox Select Alternative

Instead of holding down CTRL and then clicking on all the files you want to select, Vista includes the option to check boxes to select items instead.

1. In order to begin, you will need to use the Tools menu. In Windows Vista the menu-bar is hidden by default in most windows. Just hit ALT on your keyboard to bring it back. Now that you can see it again, click on Tools and then select Folder Options.

2. Once the Folder Options dialog is displayed, click on the View tab.

3. Under Advanced Settings, scroll down to the bottom of the list and check Use check boxes to select items.

4.Next, click OK and you are finished.
