When you right-click on them, hold the mouse steady or it will do that.

No, left click while holding down the ctrl button to select one at a time, and shift+left click to select all. (unless you have a left handed mouse)



Do not drag the mouse when you are holding down the left button.

While holding the ctrl button down, left click on a file, then release the mouse button, then go to the next file, all the while holding down the ctrl button until you have chose all the files. Release the Control button.

Right click on a highlighted file, and choose delete to delete all highlighted files.



(or click the first file, hold down the shift key, and click on the last file you want deleted. Remember, be careful. All highlighted files will be deleted, so don't highlight the files you want to keep.)

You are moving the mouse, I have to admit I had this same problem when learning the computer. It drove me crazy also. You may try using a different or new mouse.

Go into Windows Safe Mode and delete the pictures from there.
