Selecting multiple files!

There are many ways to select multiple files in either list, coverflow or column mode. The one I always use is I select the first file, I hold down "Shift" and I click on the last file. It selects all the files in between. There is another way to do this however. You just have to click on the first file at the right of the name, not on the name of the file, and scroll down to select all the files. It won't move the file like it would usually do because you didn't click on the name of the file. I didn't liked the way it worked when I accidently discovered it, but I finally think it is a feature, not a bug!

Works the same when you keep your cmd-key pressed while selecting multiple files

@Shawn

This is for selecting multiple files, but not all the files. Command-A will select all files.

Here is my problem: I have (for some reason) DUPLICATE files (about 500 of a recent wedding), and I want to ONLY SELECT EVERY OTHER FILE!!? Is there a way/shortcut to do this, WITHOUT doing it by hand? (i.e. holding CMD, and scrolling through and selecting every other one? ) PLEASE LET THERE BE A WAY!
