Adding contents to a folder
If you want to move items from one location to another there are 2 options. The options are:
1. Drag and drop: have the 2 locations (where the file is and where you want it) visible on your screen. Press and hold down the left mouse button and move the file to the other location.
2. Copy and paste: this option is best if you cannot view the 2 locations on your screen at a time. Select the file(s) you want to move, go to edit menu in upper left, and select cut. Open up the folder of where you want the file to go, then go to edit menu and select paste.
Selecting multiple files at a time
If you want to select a group of objects in the same area select the first file of the group you want selected, hold down the shift key and while holding it down click on the last file of the group you want selected.
If you want to select a group of objects in areas not close together hold down the ctrl (Control) key and click on each file you want selected.
