If you would like to COPY several items into another folder here is a quick and simple tutorial on how its done. First navigate to the folder that you wish to copy it’s contents. While in that folder click (highlight) on just 1 of the items. Then at the same time hit Ctrl A on your keyboard. All the items will then be highlighted. Right click and choose the option paste. Then navigate to the folder or drive you wish to copy contents to. In that folder or drive right click and choose PASTE. You will now see the file folders in both locations. Quick, easy & simple!!! **Note Ctrl A held at the same time in most any Windows program will select all the contents in that particular area (Outlook, Outlook Express, etc)

My dear friend Lisa had been clicking on one file at a time to delete or move them. One day she saw me select ALL the files at one time and said,”What did you just do to select all of those? I wish I would have know about that awhile back would have saved me a bunch of time!” For instance if you want to delete all 500 of your files from your Deleted E-Mail Folder, Junk Folder or any files and folders in Windows simply:
1. Highlight one of the items
2. Simultaneously press Ctrl and A
3. All will be highlighted
4. Hit DELETE
Presto there gone………
If you would like to COPY and PASTE the files or folders somewhere else follow steps 1,2,and 3. Then right click a dialogue will appear, choose COPY, select the location you would like to move them , right click again and choose PASTE.
Presto your done….
** TIP: If you want to select all the files but a few follow the steps 1,2,3. All will be highlighted. Press and continue to hold down the Ctrl button, click on the file(s) you wish to EXCLUDE from your select all operation. Those files will become un highlighted and there for will not be moved, deleted, copied, etc.
