How to enable the check boxes in Windows 7?

By dwarkarao
Many times a need arises where we have to select more than one file from the folder which has many files. If may be for deleting, copying or for that matter anything. We usually press CTRL key and select more than one file that we want.

But there is much more convenient way and that is, by checking the files which you want. There will be check boxes appearing before the files so that you can select the ones which you want by just selecting the check boxes.

Windows 7 gives you the option to do so and the following steps will guide you to enable the same:

Step 1: Open the folder from where you want to select the files.

Step 2: Select the Folder Options from the tools menu.

Step 3: In the Folder Options go to the View tab.

Step 4: In the Advanced Settings section.

Step 5: Select the option “Use Check Boxes to select items”

Step 6: Click on apply and OK.

Now when you open the corresponding folder you will see the check boxes coming up before all the items that are present before the files. For selecting them, you can simply click on the check box and do what ever you want.
