How to Select Multiple Files on Mac

Admit it. Selecting files one by one is such a pain in the ass, isn’t it? Besides being tedious, this method is also very time-consuming and completely ineffective. Then, have you ever wondered if there is any way to select multiple files at once on a Mac? Congratulations, because the answer is yes.

As usual, I’m always there when you need a solution to a problem. This time, I will tell you about how to select multiple files on Mac.

Before we move on to the steps you need to do, make sure you are already in a file explorer app (for example, Finder). As for now, two ways that can be done to select multiple files on Mac:

  1. To select multiple files, all you have to do is press and hold the Command key, and then click the items that you want to select. Just to make sure, they don’t need to be next to each other.
  2. Or, if you want to select multiple adjacent files, you might want to try this method instead to save your time. Click the first file that you want to select, and then just press the Shift key. From that point, just click the last file and all the files between that range are automatically selected. Even easier, you can just click near the first item using a mouse/trackpad, then drag over all of the items.
