    Right Click Mouse Select All Files Gone

    I switched from Vista to 10. I am very happy with Win10. Except this is driving me nutcakes:

    I used to be able to right click on the space in a folder and choose from the pop menu "select all." It is an instant grab of every file in that folder. I have done file selection this way for years till it is ingrained in my essence; a habitual finger mouse jerk I cannot stop myself from doing. Yet now I have to tediously pick each file holding Ctrl/Shift method or slowly box them with the mouse. Right click and "select all" was much quicker!

    Is there a hidden option somewhere that would get "select all" back for me?
