  • Not a keyboard shortcut, but you can hold Ctrl and select all files with your mouse. Dec 17, 2019 at 9:40

Windows 8 + 10:

Alt+H for Home tab in the ribbon, then S and I for Invert Selection.

enter image description here

Windows 7:

Alt+E to open up the Edit menu, then I for Invert Selection.

  • Thats what I did on Win 7. Havent tried on Win 8/ 8.1 as the Menu is not visible. Does it still work on Win 8/ 10?

  • I want to know why MS had to make it a 2 character keyboard shortcut? There aren't THAT many options on the home ribbon tab that we can't have "I" or something. Alt-H-I ???
