Unselect All Selected files

3 Feature Request: Unselect All Selected files

3.1 Use case or problem

PROBLEM: In the navigation pane, when I right click to delete several files, I discover that I have accidentally multi-selected files in several folders, and cannot unselect them because I don’t know which folder they reside in. And there is no command or right click option to “Unselect all selected files”

3.2 Proposed solution

Right click on selected/highlighted files has the option: “Unselect All Selected Files”

4 Current workaround (optional)

Close obsidian and reopen.


Got the same problem here.

I have this problem with folders. If I shift-click a folder it selects multiple folders including ones I dont want, but then I cannot deselect any of them.

The only way I found to deal with it, other than closing and opening Obsidian, is to go into a folder and left click to select a file that has not previously been selected in the Shift-click selection. This then deselects all the folders.
