Difference between Shift-Click and Command-Click

In OSX you can shift click and command click. That allows you to select multiple items that aren't right next to each other. The types of clicks do the same thing in Icon View but in every other view they have a different function. It wasn't included in Icon View because it would take a rather large learning curve.

So in, Grid, List and Cover Flow View Command-Click selects multiple separates files. Shift-Click selects all the files in between the file you selected first and the one you selected second.

This is quite helpful to know so that you don't waste time dragging the cursor while clicking to select everything in a list. Just scroll to the top and shift-click.

I hope this helps you boost your productivity.
