Windows 7: Question about delting or moving files

Question about delting or moving files

Hi, this is my first post. I've been lurking and reading threads and learning about Windows 7. I've had in on my computer for a couple of weeks now.

I have a question. In Windows XP you can right click and drag to select several files to either copy, move, or delete

I haven't been able to figure out how to do that with Windows 7. It seems I can only do one file at a time.

Anybody know how I select a group of files?

Hold down the control key and you can select more than 1. Or you can use the shift key to select a range of files.

Thanks, that's exactly what I wanted to know. I tried it and it works.
