In Windows, it is possible. If you hold mouse pointer over an icon for
some time (approx. half a second), it is selected. If you hold shift and
hold over some other icon, the range is selected. So, instead of
single-click, you just wait.

It was not very convenient on windows, maybe because of bad timeout, or
just because I like double-clicking.
