add 'select all' option to right click menu

by slipknotForSouljaBoy / March 21, 2009 6:09 PM PDT

how do i add 'select all' option to the rightClick menu when i right click in a folder. i know you can do 'Ctrl+A'. i want to do this using the mouse. i'd prefer if someone told me how to do this using operations performed within the system without having to install an application. i'm comfortable with the registry and am open to editing the registry

i checked the 'google search' link you sent me. i saw only Vista related results. i'm using 'Windows XP Service Pack 3'. i'd be thankful if you could send me a link to the precise webPage you felt solves my problem.

But the registry file would apply to XP too. The reason for the search is so that you can see how you might find such a thing. If you need more support than that, write to the author of the reg file.
