Here, the selected products all have now the same manufacturer "Fashion manufacturer":
To select multiple rows that do not follow each other, make CTRL on the first row and then click CTRL on the other rows that you want to select.
If the lines follow each other or are joined, then select the first line and click Shift (or Shift) on the last line to select.
