Mignight commander has another shortcut, that uses mask and allows you to select all the files in a mc panel.

  1. Call Select dialog. Press hotkeys "Alt+Shift+=", or go to Main menu > File > Select group.
  2. Insert selection mask "*"
  3. Press Enter button.

After this all files are selected and now you’re welcome to do anything you want: copy, move, delete, etc.
