Hit the LEFT-side SHIFT-key at least 5 times.
This turns on "STICKY-KEYS" within Windows,
such that touching the CTRL key "sticks" it on,
so that you can use the mouse to select items,
and then touch CTRL once more to "unstick" it.

How do I delete large numbers of pictures at one time


Method #1 Click and drag.
Click and hold the left mouse button and drag the box around all the pictures you want to delete. This will select any it covers. Right click and click Delete.

Method #2 Shift select
Click on first picture you want to delete, hold down shift, click on last picture you want to delete. This will select any between them. You can also hold shift and press the down arrow to select them one at a time. Then right click and click Delete.

Method #3 Ctrl click
Use this if you only want to delete certain pictures, as you have more control. Select first picture you want to delete, then hold down Ctrl. While holding Ctrl continue to click pictures you want to delete. It will select them as you click them. In this way you can select many non-sequential files. Again, once you have them selected, right click and delete.

***These methods work to select multiple files, so can also be used to move or copy multiple files as well. It's easy one you've done it a time or two.

Computer mouse tips


Using the mouse in combination with the keys on your keyboard can give you several different advantages and help improve your overall productivity on the computer. Below are just a few examples.
Almost all text editors
Many text editors or programs that allow you to edit text support the ability to quickly highlight all or portions of text by using the Shift key and the mouse. For example, move the cursor to the beginning of the text you wish to highlight, hold down the shift key, and click at the end of the text you wish to highlight. If supported and done properly this will highlight all text in-between the points you clicked.
Microsoft Word
In Microsoft Word holding down the ALT key on your keyboard while clicking and dragging your mouse and you will be able to drag a box and highlight only portions of text and not the whole line.
Windows Explorer and many other file
Microsoft Windows Explorer and other file managing programs allow users to select multiple files by holding down the CTRL key and clicking each file or folder they wish to select or hold down the shift key and selecting multiple files at once.
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and other browsers
Users who visit a website with tables and wish to only select one row of that table can hold down the CTRL key and click and drag on the text in the row they wish to copy.
Mozilla Firefox users
Mozilla Firefox users can also hold down the CTRL key and individually click on each cell they wish to copy.

How do i delete multiple messages at one time?


I assume the multiple messages you refer to are email messages.
If so, you can delete multiple messages as follows:
1. For messages listed one above the other in a row, use you mouse to select the first message so that is is highlighted. Then hold down your shift key and select the last message in your continuous list of messages. All the messages from the first to the last should now be highlighted (i.e., selected). While in this mode with the messages highlighted, press the delete key on your keyboard, or alternately, use your mouse and select the delete icon at the top of the email screen (it looks like a trash can).
You can also just drag the selected emails while holding the shift key down into your system trash.
2. For multiple messages that are not in a continuous list, while holding down the option key, use your mouse to highlight each message by clicking on it. When all the messages you wish to delete are selected, as above, press the delete key on your keyboard or use you mouse to select the delete button at the top of the email screen.

These instructions are for when you are using the apple mail program. It will likely work with other mail programs.

How to copy and paste


left click once on what you want to copy one item
hold down the left mouse button and move the mouse over the desired text you wish to select to copy and then let go of the left mouse button
so it is highlighted and then
hold down CTRL key and press C to copy
Hold down CTRL key and press V to Paste
Assuming it is a windows system
If it is apple the apple key and C I think does copy
Any edit tab option on the program usually has copy and paste
You can also use in Windows the right mouse button to bring up a menu where copy and paste are options to select.
If you are copying files you can also use CTRL A for select All
CTRL to select more than one item
Shift to select a range of items
if Windows
If you are using ubuntu the shift key plus CTRL plus V must also be used when pasting into the terminal window.

How do i get rid of unwanted files


Removing the files mostly depends on the source of the files.

If you ware wanting to remove a PROGRAM that is installed on the system but you don't use, then you go to CONTROL PANEL, add/remove programs (IN VISTA, PROGRAMS AND FEATURES) select the program to remove, and click uninstall. Repeat for all unwanted applications. Some programs may not be listed in control panel, those usually have an uninstall application in the folder of the program in the Programs Menu (Click Start Programs [all programs] then application folder, then the uninstall link.)

If you ware wanting to remove DATA Files (Music, photos, documents you wrote etc.) then right click the start button, click in the folder tree to find the file(s) you want to delete and right click the file, click DELETE. You can select multiple files by holding hte CNTL key and clicking multiple files.

How to delete multiple things off my acer laptop at the same time


A good place to start is...

Start>Run>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

You can uninstall lots of programs here.

If you are trying to delete, lets say a bunch of files at once, here are some useful shortcuts.

Ctrl+Click will highlight everything you click on then you can hit delete once.

Click one item then Hold Shift+Click to select all files inbetween your first and last click.

Drag a box with the left mouse button to highlight multiple icons/files then hit delete.
