Selecting Multiple Items

This is covered in the online help, but it can be hard to find, so I've decided to write this quick how-to.

Manually selecting items in Plex is easy. Whether your library is displaying Artists, Albums, or Tracks (in Music libraries. These steps also apply in Movies, TV, and in a limited way in Photo libraries), on the left sidebar in Plex Web, find the 'Select' button:

Click it to remove the checkmark. This puts you into Select mode (seems backward, I know). Now click on the items you want. A checkmark will appear (or an orange vertical bar for tracks) on selected items.

You may also multi-select items by using the Ctrl or Shift key while clicking on items. Ctrl+click allows you to select multiple individual items. Shift+click allows you to select a range of items (Shift+click first and last items, and everything between them will be selected). This is similar to the way most file manager applications work.
