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 then just click on the items to select them.

On the other hand, files can be close and right to each other, and then click on the first item, then click on the Shift button on your keyboard, and finally, click on the last item you want to select. All of the items that are listed between the first and the last one will be selected.

If you don’t want to use the Shift button, you can use the mouse or a trackpad instead. To do that, click somewhere near the first item, and then press and hold the button of the mouse 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.
