    Unable to select multiple files at a time on Windows XP using Shift or Ctrl keys

    It is possible to more than one file on my PC running on Windows XP simultaneously using CTRL+A key. But when I use Shift or Ctrl keys separately for this purpose, the system won’t perform any action on the files. Is there any solution available for this problem?

    Hi dear friend...........

    First of all check whether the problem is software related or Hardware related .........that is

    simply click the start menu button and choose run and type OSK and press ENTER Key

    then try to select files with ctrl key by using the onscreen keyboard

    if it works ...then there is a problem with your keyboard only

    other wise .... follow this procedure

    press windows key+r and type devmgmt.msc in the run box and press ENTER Key

    then expand Keyboards ....and right click on Keyboard device and choose Update driver software option and follow the instructions

    and if still the problem persists........simply re-install the keyboard drivers .....to fix your issue

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!

    Hello my dear friend ...

    How about you ??

    Well

    Follow the below procedure


    TO SELECT MULTIPLE FILES USING "" SHIFT "" KEY ::


    <> Press and Hold the Shift key

    <> Select the First file that you want to Select

    <> So if you keep pressing the Shift key .. then you can select any Number of Files at a time


    <> If you remove the Shift key the selection will be Removed

    <> The selection of file is Continuous in nature




    TO SELECT MULTIPLE FILES USING """ CTRL """ KEY ::



    <> Press and Hold down the CTRL key

    <> And then select the file that you want to select

    <> After this you can select the Other files by holding the CTRL key


    <> The selection can be Random in nature




    ALL THE VERY GOOD LUCK
