Unless i am just to tired to remember, there used to be a way to use a right click option called "Select all". This was done so that you could search a directory and all subdirs for a certain type of file, say DOC or PDF and when the list came up it coule have hundreds of files in it. You could either select the first file found one, then scroll to the last one hold SHIFT when you selected it which highlighted them all. At which time you could move them all at once to a new location.
The highlight top and shift highlight last worked (and still does) but on listed that go several pages it is tedious.
I swear there used to also be an option for "select all" which did the same thing then you could right click and move them all to the folder you wanted them in.
I may have dreamed this up but i really thought it used to be there. If not, anybody know a way to add it to 8.1 windows explorer?
