I can't select which pics to copy to a cd, it's all or nothing. There are no
check boxes next to the pics-help please!

=========================
To multiple select...hold your Ctrl
key while left clicking (selecting)
your choice of files.

Try to be precise with your clicking
because if you accidentally drag the
selected files and then release your
mouse button...copies of all the
selected files will appear.

If this happens...go to..edit / Undo Copy...
The following info may be useful also:

===

The copies are created when you fail to
completely release the mouse button before
you move the pointer to another file. If a group
of selected files is dragged...even the slightest
bit...releasing the mouse button will produce
copies of all the previously highlighted files.

It's somewhat easier if you have your Folder
Options set to Single Click...this way you can
select/deselect a file with just a mouse over
and you don't have to click. For multiples you
still have to hold...Ctrl or Shift.

No click...no drag...no copy...maybe that's
your solution. To adjust for single click...
Open a folder and go to...Tools / Folder
Options / General tab...tick..."Single Click
To Open An Item" / Apply / OK.
