So with 5.7.1 you were able to select files with mouse?

prikryl, are we supposed to be able to select two or more files with the mouse in the first place? I see the encapsulation window, but then it just disappears as soon as I let the mouse button go. I never understood the point of that. If multi-file encapsulation isn't possible (without holding down a key), then why show the expanding window at all?

The selection rectangle disappears once you release the mouse. But the files selected using the rectangle should stay selected. Note that you have to extend the rectangle to the Name column of the panel to select the files.

Are you talking about Explorer mode, which I never use but which I see does work?

It doesn't in Commander.

That was it! Mine was on "Never" for some reason, even though I would never have set that when in my right mind.

This install, while updated, is one that I've had for over 5 years. Is it possible that the default was "Never" way back when and it just carried over through the years?

Thanks
