Can't select files or folders
Hi!
I have a problem: in some folders (not in all) of my PC I can't select all
the files with one click (you know, when you press for long mouse-left and
the blue square appears to select all the files you want). I have to select
one by one. Why's that? In others there are no problems... I don't know why.
If you have an answer, please, answer me.

Re: Can't select files or folders
It's a quirk of Explorer that's been showing up on some people's machines.
No known cause yet, but it gets saved with folder views once it happens.

I've written a script that helps MOST people with the multi-select problem.
It will remove single-select from saved folder views & saved defaults.
Right-click the link below & select 'Save Target As..."

http://mysite.verizon.net/res18hr7/FixSingleSelect.zip

Then extract the contents of the .zip file & run the script.

Good Luck,
