Clcik and hold the mouse in an area that is not containing any files near the the files that you want to delete. Drag the mouse over the files (provided that they are all in the same line or box area) this will cause a gray shaded box to form and will select the files that you are moving over. and then either right click on the mouse and press delete or just simply press the delete key on the keyboard. If you have mulitple files that you want to delete that are spread out through out the folder simply press and hold the control (CTRL) key and with your mouse click specific files that you want to delete and then again either right click on any file and press delete or just press the delete key on you keyboard.
