How to select multiple files on Mac
Selecting several files on a Mac isn’t as complicated as it may seem. Here is how you can do that.
Sometimes, the files you want to select are not close to each other or right next to each other, right? If that’s the case, press and hold the Command key and click on the items to select them.
On the other hand, files can be close and right to each other; click on the first item, click on the Shift button on your keyboard, and finally, click on the last item you want to select. All the items listed between the first and last will be selected.
If you don’t want to use the Shift button, you can use a mouse or a trackpad instead. To do that, click somewhere near the first item, and then press and hold the mouse button or your trackpad and drag it over the other items and files you wish to select.
This is how you can select multiple files on a Mac. You decide which method suits you best.
