Multiple file selection on desktop (act like icon and not like a list)
my problem is pretty simple, when i select a groupe of file with shift on my desktop,
the selection act like a folder with icon display setting (well it's what the desktop folder is i agree ). It select them from left to right and line to line.
But i want the old selection style back (xp), like a folder with list display setting, so i can select a column of files on the left of my screen without taking those that are on the top right with the selection.
Thanks for help.

i'm mostly looking for a hack i just took a little screen to explain it better
When i shift click from "RAR 1" to "RAR 7" it also take the "TXT 3" "Folder 5/6" "DOCX 1" with it for example. And this is NOT what i want.
I want that it work like under Win XP again, because this is how i use my desktop... using it as the download folder and keeping some important files in corners.
And of course i don't wanna change the way i use it, the computer should adapt to the user needs and not the reverse
Is there a way to find the original behavior back again? I dunno... a registry hack, a deeply hidden .ini to edit... ?
Again, thanks for help.
