    I am running Windows 7 on a MacBook Pro virtual machine. On a PC I can open Windows Explorer and select certain files within a folder with Ctrl-Click. Does anyone know the equivalent keyboard shortcut on a MacBook Pro?


    Thank you,

    Jonart

    Thanks Kemical that list was some help. However it did not address the specific question. Let me restate it:

    Windows 7 on virtual MacBook Pro
    Open Windows Explorer
    Navigate to and open a folder.
    *Select non-contiguous items (to copy or move for instance).

    *What is the keyboard shortcut for this (or even the long way)?

    Cmd-Click does not work.

    Thanks for your help.

    [TD]I found the following shortcut in the 128 useful Shortcuts list. It works! Thanks Bassfisher.

    "Select multiple non-adjacent items. Hold ctrl, use arrow keys to move to next item, and press space to add/remove from selection"
