How to delete multiple files/folders at once (simple, right?) HA!

In the old days you used to be able to highlight the files or folders you wanted to get rid of by using Control key or left click/drag. I can't do that now! How the heck do I delete a bunch of stuff in a folder without having to click on each one seperately and deleting it? I wish I had a harder question for you... lol.

Click the first one, the hold down the Ctrl key and click the last
one. That selects all the files from one to the other. Then press
delete.
