How To Use Check Box File Selector On Your Pc. by Cornellinc(m): 1:06pm On Sep 23, 2018
There are various methods you can use to select files and folders on your pc. Using check boxes is however the easiest of them. It allows you easy and faster selection of files, using checkboxes at the top leftcorner of your file.

But the feature is always disabled by default and you won't be able to use it unless you find the settings and activate it on your pc.

Here is a simple guide to activating the check box feature on your computer. (This will take less than 30 seconds of your time and you need not be a tech guru to do this)

STEPS TO ACTIVATE THE CHECK BOX FILE SELECTOR ON PC -
1.  OPEN YOUR COMPUTER FILE EXPLORER.
This is also your file manager which you can easily open by navigating to the folder and double clicking it.
This can also be achieved by holding down the windows button and pressing 'E'. (See image below).

2. CLICK ON "VIEW"
Go to the top menu bar of your pc and click on "VIEW" which you'll find on the side of file-computer-'view'.

3. FIND AND SELECT "ITEM CHECK BOXES "
Clicking 'view' reveals extra settings amongst which you'll find options to display your icons as extra large, small, tiles, large, list, content, medium-sized and details. You'll see the "item check boxes"
"file name extensions"
"Hidden items " on the fourth column.

You should see a check box every time you point your cursor to a folder/file on your pc.
Deactivating this feature takes the same steps, only you need to uncheck the box.
