    That should only not work on the desktop starting with v1703, but still work in File Explorer for all versions.
    Got it - I understand now :)

    They still work for me using Ctrl+Shift in a folder. Ctrl+Alt doesn't work for me though.

    This is strange and I wonder if it depends on the keyboard. For me I have found that Ctrl+Alt work in a folder but Ctrl+Shift do not work. So I am the same as @Bree but different to @Brink :)

    ...My keyboard is the Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600 and I am on a UK system (like Bree)
    For completeness, some further information about my set up. Both the laptops in 'My Computers' below are UK models, with Windows 10 1703 installed using media made with the MCT for 'English (British)'. On install, language and keyboard were both set as the default UK English. Both laptops use their own internal keyboards. They both require the left Alt key and do nothing with the Shift key.

    My second system below has multiple system images available for test purposes, I've restored each to check their behaviour. All Windows 10 versions back to 1507 (10240) only work with the Alt key (the Windows 7 image of course offers no such shortcuts).

    W7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), LM 19.2 MATE (64 bit), W10 Home 1703 (64 bit), W10 Pro 1703 (64 bit) VM

    They do work on my W10 Home laptop (using "Ctrl+Shift + number" ).

    They don't work on my W7 PC.
    Are those keyboard shortcuts supposed to work in W7?
