    I have the MBA 2013, and I can't select multiple files (pictures) with Shift-click.
    Could you please tell me how to select multiple files (not command-A).
    I've tried in vain: Shift-click. It acts as control-click, i.e. one file at a time. Command-click doesn't work neither.

    Thank you for your help.

    If you have a series of files, such as file1, file2, file3, etc., then you can click the top (or bottom) one, then hold down Shift, and then click the bottom (or top) one to select all the files in between.

    Otherwise, if selecting single files, hold down command and click.

    Shift-click should also work for selecting multiple files. Check your System Preferences > Keyboard settings. Maybe you should even go so far as to restore the defaults.
