    Angry File selection & de-selection
    I am such a n00b. This is driving me nucking futs.

    I have selected all of the files (using Command-A) in my Downloads directory, as per this screenshot.

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/92027174/Sc...46.39%20PM.JPG

    All I want to do is deselect the Resume binarysmurf document. I have read online that if I Command-click on the file it will deselect. This is not working.

    What am I doing wrong? Please tell me

    That is strange, since this works for me, I can select all files with CMD+A and then deselect with CMD+click as you've read..

    This is on OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2..

    I've tried Command-click with both the magic mouse and a USB two-button mouse. Command-click does work, just not consistently. Obviously, I'm clicking it wrong. Thanks for your help !

    (Also on 10.8.2)

    Command-shift-click works 100% of the time. That's just weird.

    Hmm, I didn't know about CMD+SHIFT+click, that's cool..at least for me, either way works just the same..

    I booted into my Dad's account, and Command-click DID work as expected, so...

    It turns out I was running a third party utility (Hyperdock) that over-rode the default setting. I changed a few settings in HD and all works as it should.

    Thanks for the input.
