I’ve no idea when there is a check box before each item in file explorer, I guess from Windows 8? However, I never use this feature during my whole computer life. In my mind, it is quite a useless feature of Windows. If you think it is useful, please leave a comment and tell me why. But existence is reasonable, now that Microsoft developed such a feature one generation to another, some users must get used to it. And now let’s see how to enable or disable that checkbox in Windows 11.
Windows 11 has this feature disabled as default. And it is quite easy to enable.
- Open “This PC”
- Click “View” at the top navigation bar of File explorer
