Sort the accounts by selecting a column heading.
This feature, along with the careful selection of filters, allows you to efficiently select a group of items. For example, filtering student accounts by login date, then sorting them by date of creation will reveal all of the old, unused accounts that should be deleted.

- Tick or untick the first box that appears in the column heading to select or deselect all the accounts. *Hold down the ⇧ key and all the items between the first and second ticked or unticked accounts will be selected or deselected.
