    Ok, how about select multiple files using pen. normally using SHIFT-left button on mouse.

    How about emulating CTRL-left button on mouse. selecting files individual files.

    I think with a keyboard attached you can do multiple selections with a pen.

    You can tick the boxes next to files in Windows explorer, or drag boxes around them to multi select.

    Thanks Frank. I forgot about using the check boxes. Using the check boxes works fine without a keyboard. If you hold the pen down on one of them after making the multiple selection, you are offered if you want to copy or move your selection. Don't get caught in thinking that you're going to copy your selection by just pointing the pen at your selections and dragging them somewhere. If you do they will have been moved and not copied. I couldn't find a way to do the "shift" key trick of multiple selection but you can swipe the pen tip down over several consecutive rows to quickly do a multiple select.
