How To Select All But A Few Files Quickly And Easily
How often have you needed to select all but one or two files in a Windows Explorer or folder window? How often have you selected these files by holding down the Ctrl key and carefully clicking every file EXCEPT the files you don't want to select? You've been working too hard! To select all but one or two files, all you have to do is this:
1 - In Windows Explorer or My Computer, highlight the files you don't want to select by holding down the "Ctrl" key while you click the files.
2 - Click the Edit menu and choose "Invert Selection"
3 - Windows 95/98 instantly selects all the files you didn't select and deselects the files you originally highlighted.
