How to select multiple files in the file manager on Windows?
Can't believe that STRG + click doesn't work! SHIFT + click works, but of course only selects files next to each other.
Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 1803
I use a Mac and the 'Command' key.
Multiple selction always works with my Mac. Now on Windows, I'm stunned, that this simple task is a problem.
"Fixed inability to ctrl-click or command-click file manager results to select them in bulk (thanks dimger)"
Seems that this actually hasn't been fixed?
No other key works for multiple selection, as i would expect from CTRL + click.
Updated to 8.4.3 now, but CTRL + click for multiple selection of files still doesn't work.
Now i have tested this
- on several installations of concrete5 8.4.2 and 8.4.3
- on different servers
- with different themes (including elemental theme)
- on a clean installation of concrete5 8.4.2 without any add-ons or themes installed
- on Windows 10 and Windows 7 machines
- with different browsers: Firefox, Chrome, IE 11, Edge.
It's possible to select a bunch of files next to each other by SHIFT + click.
It's not possible to select multiple files in the file manager by CRTL + click.
The second option is very much needed if we have to select files in order to be able to add them to file sets easily.
So this is a Windows-related issue which should be solved.
Hope it helps.
Windows 10 64Bit
I reported this issue to the bug trakcer in october 2018, and it was confirmed.
It was also reported to GitHub by @mnakalay
It will be fixed in 8.5.2 !
