    Selecting multiple files
    Hi, I just switched over from windows and in windows you can click one file, hold shift and select another file and then windows will highlight all of the files in between. How do you do this on a mac?

    Thanks! Oh and I just got my MB so I'm running snow leopard...10.6 right?

    same way, shift for a range, cmd for individual multiple files

    That doesn't work for me. If I select a file and then hold shift and select another file it doesn't select those two and all of the ones between it only selects the two that I clicked on.

    Change from icon view to list view and try again

    Oh ok that works. Thank you! Is there no way to do it in icon view?
