is the following tutorial from off my website is what he is
wanting. It is for windows explorer.
Selecting and unselecting files in File Explorer
When you go into a folder in file explorer you might only want to
copy certain files out of that folder. They might not be together
or in a group. To copy only certain files out of the folder if
there are heaps of them you will need to do the following.
It would be easier to go to the top of the folder so you can see
all the files below. Now, hold down the Ctrl key, then use the
Spacebar to select or unselect hightlighted files. Each time you
press the Spacebar on an unselected file it will then become
selected. Work your way down the files you want and select them
with the Spacebar while still holding the Ctrl key. You should
hear whether it is selected or unselected. As you arrow down the
list of files, to confirm which ones you selected while still
holding down the Ctrl key, go to the top of the folder then arrow
down the list. If it only says the name of the song it is selected
but if it says the name of the song and unselected then you know
it is not. Usually the status bar can be read with the NVDA key +
End key but not at present.
You can grab an NVDA add-on to tell you how many files have been
selected until Windows fixes this problem. You will need to use
the NVDA key and the End key to see how many file were selected.

You should not need to use Ctrl while doing this; Shift + ↓ will
extend a continuous selection. Using Ctrl + Shift + ↓ seems to
continue a non-continuous selection from the last selected item
(IE the one nearest above where you are in the list). With that in
mind, are you trying to use Ctrl+Shift+↓ in a list view where
nothing is selected? If so, try pressing Space on the item you
want to be the first selected item, then using Ctrl+Shift+↓.
