Okay, riddle me this, Apple Fans:
Let’s say I have a list of 26 songs (let’s call them “A” through “Z”) in iTunes, and I want to select *some* of them. I click on the beginning of my selection (let’s say “L”) hold down shift, and start cursoring down to select “M, N, O, P” and keep going until I hit “S,” but through the magic of poor reflexes, I actually go one more line to “T.” I now have L throught T selected in a highlighted range that’s one more file than I wanted.
With me so far?
So, everyone think about what you would like to THINK would be the way to unselect the T track. Don’t answer me yet. Just keep it in your head for a second.
I, as a old fogey user of Paperclip, Geos, Windows, OpenOffice, WP51Dos, and freakin’ Nano user do the following:
Keeping the shift key down, I hit cursor up.
Can someone PLEASE explain to me why the range increases above my current selected range, to now include K? T is still selected.
Really? K? That’s what people tend to do? Click somewhere in the middle of the range they want to select and then hit cursor-up/down to select in both directions? REALLY?
I mean, c’mon. Who asked for that?
Maybe it’s only in iTunes under Windows, but somehow I doubt it.
And I’m looking at you too, Microsoft/Logitech.
Let’s make the default of the function keys something OTHER than their normal response? BRILLIANT! A round of Nobel prizes, for my FRIENDS who came up with this. Thanks so much for dooming 5 years worth of my fellow technicians to having to hit F-Lock (to put the functions keys BACK to their initial setting) and then F1, F2, F6, F8, or F11 to choose their boot/setup options.
Oh, and you have to do that during the two seconds of the POST (Power On. See? Tease!) when you’re allowed to do anything other than go back into Windows again.
Pfft. F-lock. I mean, really.
