First, it's important to select the right options in Settings, I recommend to enable these NC mode options:

[x] select items in nc-mode
[x] extended selection with shift and ctrl
[x] go to the next item after selecting with spacebar

Then, there are several options how to achieve what you want...

1. Easiest - press the keys: Space, Down arrow, Space
2. Insert, Down, Down, Insert
3. Shift+Down, Shift+Down, Up, Space
4. Shift+Down, Shift+Down, Ctrl+click on second item
5. Ctrl+click on first and third item

If you want to select many files, all except one or few, it's better to use Ctrl+A or Num * and then use arrow keys to go to file you want to deselect and just press Space or Insert key.

Another hint - if you want to select several files out of many files, it's useful to use the last NC mode option I suggested, then you just press keys Space and down arrow keys, Space means select, down key means skip.

@Vansen: any specific reason you want to use the Shift key, as Ctrl was always used for this task in Windows Explorer (and works fine in FC XE, too)?

In FC XE 650 in NC-Mode there is a PROBLEM with Shift+Down
If we stand on "file 1" and press Shift+Down, then the 1-st and the 2-nd files are selected. After that we go "file 3" and again press Shift+Down and then the 3-rd and the 4-th files are selected!

If we stand on "file 1" and press Shift+Down, then the 1-st and the 2-nd files are selected. If we again press Shift+Down on "file 2", then all 3 files are selected (during second press of Shift+Down 2-nd file is not inverted and stays selected).
