    Default Cannot select multiple or several files at a time.

    Hi,

    I lost a most basic keyboard and mouse function presumably when installing a new mouse and/or comprising Vista. What I cannot do anymore is select several files at a time and move/copy/delete them in explorer and subfolders. This neither works with the mouse nor with the keyboard, I have to move these files individually.



    Does anyone have a quick fix, I went through all set up options for the basic functions of almost everything and I can't stand moving files individually.

    Appreciate your help! Thanks a million!

    If you go to where the folders are and select organize at the top and then select all, they become highlighted and then right click to either move or delete it is that simpe. Welcome to the forum

    Try this :

    Open regedit and navigate to the following key :

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\

    Delete the Bags keys

    Reboot and see if it has helped.

    If not, delete BagMRU key, reboot and see if it has helped.

    The Bags entries remember settings and a new Bags entry gets re-created everytime you restart or logon.

    Best to backup the registry first or atleast create a system restore point.

    Happy Andy K, you are my hero!

    Thank you so much! Got it. Took some time to find it all because on top of the shell editing, I have the German Vista version running, what takes some time getting used to. I will print out your help and frame it. I learned so much in a matter of minutes on this forum, I'm loving it and you saved someone from going insane over the weekend.

    Thank you so much!! spamalot

    Thanks Seti, for the warm welcome to the site. Unfortunately, the function select all was also disabled. I got it now and am a happy camper! Good weekend!!!
