I recently bought a Mac and am trying to get used to it.
What I want to know is how to select multiple groups of files in Finder.
Let's say that there are 10 files and each of them is named as 1,2,3,...,10, respectively.
If I want to select files 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, and 10 on Windows, I normally use Shift-Click and Ctrl-Click as follows:
1) Click on 1
2) Shift-Click on 3
3) Ctrl-Click on 6
4) Ctrl-Shift-Click on 8
5) Ctrl-Click on 10

I tried to use same technique on Mac, however it did not work. While pressing Command and Shift keys, when I click the mouse button, like 4), all of the files between 1 and 8 are selected.

Please let me know how to select bunches of files located separately on Finder.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
