Is there keyboard shortcut similar to CTRL-LMB ? If I have 10 files and I only want to select 3, I can hold CTRL and use left mouse button to select which files I want. Is there a keyboard shortcut for that? Something like using arrows keys, then pressing some shortcut to highlight the file, then pressing enter to do something with those selected files?

You can use CTRL + Space to select a focused file or folder and use CTRL + Arrow Keys to Move Around.

Additionally, you can use Shift + Arrow to select multiple files if they are in a row.


If you hold down CTRL and navigate using the arrow keys, you can select individual files with the Space key.
