multiple selected images (Picture No. 2). To select multiple image
files, please move mouse pointer to the file name of the first image

depress the left mouse button and hold it down while moving the mouse
pointer over the file names of the other images. When the mouse pointer
is over the last image, please release the left mouse button. Once the
files are selected, choose "View
Thumbnails" (or "View Dense Thumbnails") command from "Right Panel" menu.
