    How to Add "Select all" to the Context Menu in Windows 7


       Information
    By default in Windows 7, you have to either click on Edit (Menu bar) and Select all, or press CTRL+A to select all items in a Windows Explorer window.

    This will show you how to add Select all to the context menu of a file, folder, drive, desktop, and library to be able to easily select all items in a Windows Explorer window in Windows 7.

    You must be logged in as an administrator to be able to do this tutorial.

       Warning
    Do not use this in Vista since Vista does not have libraries. Use the tutorial below for Vista instead:

    LOL, yeah, it's a pain to have to use the keyboard when we can just right click and click away.

    Thanks Shawn as usual I have found great use for this.

    To explain why I need the right click options may help people understand how beneficial it is for someone like me, see I have a problem with my spine and sit in a chair custom made for me so I am in less pain and turning to type hurts more than right clicking
    Maybe now you can understand my posts like
    "omfg your awesome thank you so much" etc... hehe

    Thank you once again for making my life so much easier.

    Hi Michael,

    Just a short note to let you know you are not alone with this issue. I have been forced to learn to use the On Screen Keyboard with the mouse due to a injury and condition that makes typing very difficult and painful. I have been useing this program to give me 2 options to enable the quicker and easier mouse feature. I cannot get it to work on my new Windows 7 64 bit setup yet.

    Take Care
