    Multiple selection in "touch mode" for windows tablet user


    Dear All,


    I have been trying to do multiple selection of files with my windows 10 tablet in touch mode (without mouse and without keyboard) in the MS file explorer. The files are pictures, which I watch in view "extra large icons" to be sure I select the correct ones.


    Under "view" I have selected the option "Item check boxes". Despite of this, it is very hard to select with fingers multiple files for an operation (e.g. move): When you click in a box with your finger, in general it leads to the unselection of another file you had clicked previously. Sometimes it works: you manage to select two files at the same time, but the risk is high that when you select a third box/file, you loose all the selections, and end up only with the third box ticked.


    Of course when you have a keyboard, it is easy to select multiple files using the control key. However the idea of a tablet is to use only the fingers.


    Mutliple selection works better when I select the "content" view" instead of extra large icons. Not sure why. However the problem in such a case is that the pictures are very small, so I cannot really see if I am selecting the correct file or not.... I need to be able to do selection in "extra large icons" or "large icons".


    So to summarize: it seems that multiple selection of pictures using only touch in MS file explorer is very difficult. Android seems to have a much better solution (MS could learn from ES file explorer).


    Or did I miss something?

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    :)
