Selecting multiple downloads

How do I select (Highlight) several downloaded files at once to transfer to a USB drive, rather than having to drag them over one at a time? I have a Lenovo Yoga N23. Thanks.

Re: Selecting multiple downloads

Found this:

 

  1. From within the Files application window hold the Ctrl key and click the desired files.

    The files you click are all highlighted.

  2. Click and hold on any part of your selection; without releasing, drag the selection to the desired location.

    Hovering the files over the destination folder highlights the folder.

  3. Release to drop the files into the target folder.

Sounds very similar to windows. Holding the shift key while dragging your finger down the list performs the same function as Shift-click does in Windows, it appears.
