The application does not respond when I select all files at once.
40 mln files (Everything) and other tools without a problem, even if I select 50+M files. Strongly stable.
I have to kill the process in the Task Manager every time.

Thanks for the bug report.

Selecting all files and folders should be instant.
However, performing an action on the large selection will be slow.

If you are right clicking these files, Everything will need to get the IDLIST for each file which takes a very long time.
Everything does not store files by IDLIST, instead is stores them by filename.
It is the process of converting a filename to an IDLIST that is slow.

If you want to perform an action without IDLISTs use the main File menu.

I have on my TODO list, allow ESC to cancel gathering IDLISTs.
