Selecting all in mc
Selecting all files and folders in a directory viewed in a panel of Midnight Commander. Achieving the same effect a does Ctrl + A under Microsoft Windows or Cmd + A in macOS:
- Open a directory
- Ctrl + Shift + =
- Enter * [asterisk]
The keyboard shortcut of Ctrl + Shift + = is meant to type plus symbol. So just Shift + = may also happen to be enough.
The Using shell patterns option in selection options prompt has to be checked on in order to make asterisk to work as the symbol for all or any.
- Many other *nix systems
