Selecting tasks works very much like in Windows Explorer, on which ToDoList was modelled.

Individual Tasks
Single tasks can be be very easily selected using either the mouse, with the left button, or the keyboard, using the <Up> and <Down> keys.

Multiple Tasks
Selecting multiple tasks is most easily done using both the mouse and the keyboard together, whilst selecting multiple tasks using only the keyboard is much more limited.

1. Using the mouse and keyboard
This method works by holding down none or more modifier keys at the same time as clicking on a task.

  • To select a group of individual (disjointed) tasks:
    1. Select the first task of the group with a simple mouse click
    2. Hold down the <Ctrl> key and click each task of interest to add it to the group
  • To select an adjacent (contiguous) range of tasks:
    1. Select the first task in the range with a simple mouse click
    2. Hold down the <Shift> key and click the last task in the range
  • To add additional individual (disjointed) tasks to an existing group/range of tasks
    1. Hold down the <Ctrl> key and click each additional task of interest to add it to the group
  • To add another adjacent (contiguous) range of tasks to an existing group/range of tasks
    1. Hold the down the <Ctrl> key and click the first task in the additional range
    2. Hold down both the <Ctrl> and <Shift> keys and click the last task in the additional range

2. Using the keyboard only

Having selected the first task, now hold down the <Shift> key and use any of the following navigation keys to add successive tasks to the selection: <Up>, <Down>, <Page Up>, <Page Down>, <Home>, <End>
