    Your thread is brief, and I will look at most of the thread I was not specifically looking for. I thank you for the meat I wanted. I have always not noticed the "Home" in Win10 file explorer, and have been missing the "select all", or "invert selection". I know Win10 is not that much different than XP, as far as the basically unchanged code of Windows NT goes. I was thinking that these two file selection attributes were still buried in Win10 and I thought Microsoft hid them in Win10. Have to thank you (for the hidden obvious) for showing me that those file functions still serve one of my choices for an OS.
