    Moving single files W10 Pro 64bit

    Hello, So I open a photo folder to view a photo album. I want to move some of those photos to another album. I left click on a photo in say row 3 to select that photo. I then hold down the button above the control button (with the Up arrow), if I then click on a photo in the next row down (for instance) it selects every photo in between. I am sure my laptop never used to do that. Can anyone advise me how to fix this problem please.

    Hi, that's what SHIFT select does - correct behaviour if I've understood what you're saying without a screenshot. Same in text to select all text between 2 points, generally.

    If you wish to select, say, 3 different photos, then use CTRL + left click for each such photo.

    Bear in mind you can the rt click what you've selected and drag, then move or copy, for example.

    If neither of those is what you're seeking to do, please state that preferably with a screeshot thus:

    To add to what dalchina said, that perfectly normal action in nearly all versions of Windows there is the Ctrl + A used to select ALL files in a folder including subfolders then the right-click on the selection gives options including Copy, Move, Delete, etc. And most actions work the same in third-party file managers.
