 +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:
 +    - Select the first task of the group with a simple mouse click
 +    - 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:\\
 +    - Select the first task in the range with a simple mouse click
 +    - 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
 +    - 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
 +    - Hold the down the ''<​Ctrl>''​ key and click the first task in the additional range
 +    - 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>''​
