Back to Basics
Using Windows (File) Explorer -- Deleting Multiple Files at One Time
By Jim Cerny, Chairman, Forums Committee, Sarasota Technology UG, Florida Sarasota Technology Monitor www.thestug.org jimcerny123 (at) gmail.com
This is the fourth, and last, of a series of articles on the basic use of Windows Explorer (known as File Explorer in Windows 10). In the previous articles, we looked at the basic window layout when you open this app or program and we also talked about the two “panes” in this app window – the “Folder List” in the left pane, and the contents of a folder displayed in the right pane. Clicking on any folder on the left will show the contents of that folder on the right. In the second article we looked at the different VIEWS you can use in Windows/File Explorer and why I recommended the “Large thumbnail” view for pictures and the “Details” or “Detailed List” view for all other files. In the third article we looked at selecting files for some action, such as to move them, copy them, or delete them. In this article we will learn how to work with MULTIPLE files at one time.
+ The scrollbars should still work, so if you need to select multiple files above or below your first file, you can use the scrollbars to get elsewhere in your list. Clicking on a scrollbar will not change your selections.
+ Select all your files from ONE folder at a time. There may be a way to select files from different folders at one time, but I strongly advise against that if it is possible. You will get too confused.
+ Don’t forget you can select a FOLDER as you would a single file. If you move or delete a folder, ALL files and folders IN that folder will be moved to the new (destination) location (folder) or deleted.
+ Yes, you CAN select multiple FOLDERS the same way as you select multiple FILES. You can even select files and folders in the same selection. This is really super-helpful. The computer assumes you know what you are doing, so be careful. This is a great way to copy your stuff to another memory device as a backup.
+ Remember, files deleted from your “C” drive will go to your Recycle Bin folder, but files you delete from other drives (such as a plug-in drive or memory card) will NOT appear in your recycle bin, they will be really deleted.
+ Read the box notices that appear to make SURE you are moving or deleting the correct number of files and, if moving them, that they are going into the proper folder.
