Topic "Make deselection of files possible"

Author Message



sometimes i want to deselect the files i previously market with shift or control+click.
Usualy u do that by clicking on a blank area near the files or on any other file.
In WinSCP i have to move into another directory and go back afterwards in order to undo my selection i did before.

Thanks for this feature in a nearby release.

Kind regards

Selection/Deselection in WinSCP, by default, is "different" than in Windows Explorer (but this has changed in 5.0.0: "Explorer-style file selection with mouse is enabled by default in Commander interface.").

You can de-select a file, just like you selected it: Ctrl+Click it. I agree it's "odd" & takes time to get used to. There is also a "Clear Selection (Ctrl+L)" toolbar icon.

You can also change your selection preference, right now, to use "Explorer-style selection".

One more addition: Since the next release (4.3.5), the explorer-style mouse selection will the the default.
