    Deleting multiple documents

    That is simply more steps. What I want is for it to automatically select the next document in the list... so all I have to do is keep hitting delete. I know how to highlight sections or multiple documents... But I shouldn't have to select multiple at
    a time. As it is now, I have to physically select the next document in the list then hit delete.

    For example, in Outlook, I can run down my list of emails for the day and just hit delete. Fast and simple.

    I was once able to do that in Explorer.

  4. Windows update deleted all of my documents

    Lost documents after Windows update.

    Here are two suggestions:

    • Have a look in the folder C:\Windows.old\Users\MjKoval\Documents.
    Implement a robust backup scheme. If you have very important documents then they must be stored on two independent media.
    Do not wait until they are lost.
