Hi C. As Snorkbox suggests.

If that gives you problems, left click on the first item (files,jpegs,etc), hold down the Shift key and then left click on the last item. This selects the run within the first and second clicks. Then right click and Delete.

Thanks S, Sork too of course.

You must admit they don't exactly make it easy, nearly makes me think of turning to apple.

Pretty sure Ctrl+A also does the same thing in Windows 95 :p

In vista and the rest I used to be able to select all when going to the 2nd from top right, I defy you to find the words select all when trying to delete all in sent items.

Sorry Ga, that was, rather rash.

As the others have said, ctrl + A Selects all.

The highlighted area - are you talking about emails ? Its actually the same, single click in the sent items to activate the sent items folder, ctrl+A selects all.

Other things can work a little different to file and folders compared to emails.

Snort and C pointed out the CTR =A, my point was I used to go to the word select all and now, presumably to be different I can't.

Hence using that wicked word, I won't say it out loud.

Sorry was talking about emails in Windows Mail 2011.

My guess is that Cicero was really asking this question:-

My clue after re-reading the first post was the 2011.

Never mind about clues Snort, you were right, you should be proud of your perceptiveness.

The point I was making and I know it was a tricky one, was that in windows mail (Vista) you can root around and find select all under "file".

You can root around all day in 2011 and you won't find CTR-A.

And I thought Apple was supposed to be whatever the word is.

Hi C. Perhaps the hot weather getting to us oldies.....

To even think of forking-out for the costs of an Apple-Mac to save one of two key impressions does seem to be an over-reaction - even if the A-M did have that facility.

Good luck and let us know how you get on....................... and Happy New Year to you. S

Rest assured S, that was said in jest.

I hope you saw my point re finding CTRl A!

And a happy and prosperous New Year to you.

Maybe the issue is (in his old age) that our dear Ciccy has forgotten there is no Ctrl A key :p

Anyway, I know what you're saying :)

Should that be CTRL + A ?

Well I'm not entirely sure.. one post you refer to it as CTRl A, another post its CTR-A, and yet another you refer to it as CTR =A :waughh:

I find that right now, I should be just as lost as you :stare:

Lets just call it the bottom left button +A

That should help your slow wit.
