To select more than one file or folder to copy, hold down the CTRL key, and then click the items you want.

To select a folder in the left pane of Windows Explorer, click the folder.


The following are are my instructions

To copy a file from the software cd double click on "My Computer".  Double click on the cd-rom for your machine.  Find the file you wish to copy and click on it once using the left mouse button.  This will highlight the file.  Using the right mouse button click once choose copy.  Use the back arrow to return the main screen of "My Computer"  and choose the drive you wish to copy the file to.  Then choose the folder you would like to use.  I recommend using the temp folder.  If you do not have a temp folder on the c drive press FILE,   New,   Folder,   name the new folder temp and press return.  Copy the file into temp.
