In Windows Explorer is there a way to select all files in a folder?

If I open a folder and want to either move all files to another folder using click and move or to copy to a DVD, is there a shortcut command that would allow me to select all items instead of having to select them one at a time?

I personally like this little option myself.

Select all - Add to Context Menu in Windows 7

CTRL+A - That works for me most of the time

Hope This Helps,

I also use CTL+A - or highlight the first file, then hold down the Shift key and highlight the last file. That is handy if you only want e.g. the first 20 or so.
