When you need to copy many files, it is useful and time saving to implement a way to copy and paste multiple files at once. Although there are several ways to copy and paste multiple files, the best way is to use the Ctrl key. Other methods involve drawing a select box using the mouse or using the Shift key while clicking. However, these methods do not allow you to accurately select multiple files, but instead select chunks of files at a time.
