I would like to select multiple songs for the music app to play. The files are presented as tiles. Is there any sort of multi-select, other than brute force click'm all?

You can select multiple tiles by using the right mouse button:

  1. Right-click the first song
  2. hold Shift and right-click the last song.

This works not only in Music, but in many other applications, e.g. in SkyDrive. Also, you can replace right-click with Ctrl-left-click, so to select songs this way you would:

  1. Hold Ctrl and left-click the first song
  2. Hold Ctrl+Shift and left-click the last song.

Easy, peasy. Thanks. Not the most intuitive solution. I don't understand why the left click doesn't do the same.. – Goran_Mandic Oct 31 '12 at 23:44
I think left click means choose (perform a default action on an element), while right click means select. Note that you can also click the left mouse button while holding Ctrl to achieve the same effect. – DzinX Oct 31 '12 at 23:50
I think you meant Shift , not Ctrl.. but, yea. Left click works too, in cases where the default action is selection. – Goran_Mandic Oct 31 '12 at 23:55
No, I meant Ctrl :) You can Ctrl-left-click the first song, then Ctrl-Shift-left-click the last song. Try it :) – DzinX Oct 31 '12 at 23:56
Oh, ok. Your comment suggested otherwise ;) – Goran_Mandic Nov 1 '12 at 0:00
