Brian,
 
Very welcome information, very obvious once you know the trick, but something I had never thought to attempt. Thanks!

By the way, if you're in a situation where you want the vast majority of files/folders in a given location selected, but need to leave a few out, you can do this process "in reverse" as well

Hit CTRL+A to Select ALL
Hold down the CTRL Key, keeping it held, and up/down arrow to the individual files/folders you don't want and hit Spacebar when you're on them to deselect
Release the CTRL Key

It can be a lot less tedious when you want most, but not all, than selecting them one by one with CTRL held down.
