Calibre - "select all"?

Is there a "select all" function available for the Calibre library?

It would be useful as I would like to burn all the books to a back-up disk / USB key etc. I appreciate I can just highlight them all, and this doesn't take much time.

The OS standard: Ctrl-A
and you can click on the small square above the row numbers.

BUT
Backup, all you do is copy the entire Library folder (and contents) (with calibre not running)

Thanks Theducks - being a bit of the elderly persuasion I didn't know about CTR-A. I do now though.

The useful things you learn here!

Elderly? This duck qualifies for regular (not the early level) Social Security

Ctrl-A was used (way) back in MSDOS 2 days. It is pretty much a standard
