Don't you just hate it when you're selecting a lot of files with Ctrl key pressed, then you forget to press it again wanting to add some more files and the whole selections is gone? Arghhh.

Open Windows Explorer (Windows Key + E for the shortcut).

 
 
2.
 

Click Organize ...

 
 
3.
 

... and choose Folder and search options.

 
 
4.
 

Click the View tab.

 
 
5.
 

And check the Use check boxes to select items option and click OK.

Now when you move your mouse over an item a check box appears and you can click it to select an item as files, documents and folders.
