By finding and marking multiple files using the Find/Mark dialog box

You may find and mark all the files on the entire disk by using Mark matched files in the Find/Mark mode option. You may specify all the necessary search options and mark all the found files. Please note that each find and mark/unmark operation is independent from previous ones. That is, if a file matches the search criteria, it will be marked/unmarked regardless of its previous marked/unmarked state.

For example, if you first mark all doc files, and then all txt files, all doc files remain marked, too. If you then decide to unmark all files smaller than 2 kB, all doc and txt files will stay marked except those that less than 2 kB.
