Why not press Ctrl+A of the keyboard?

Not exactly the solution you wanted, but it achieves the same effect, with less clicks:
  1. Open an Explorer Window by pressing <WINKEY>+<E>
  2. Click "Organize"
  3. Click "Folder and Search Options"
  4. Click the "View" tab to open it
  5. Find the "Use check boxes to select items" entry in the "Advanced Settings" list, and click the box to place a check in it
  6. Click "Apply"
  7. Click "OK"
In addition to adding the facility to use check boxes (they appear only when you move the mouse over an icon) to select files, the "Name" column header will also contain a check box. Clicking this check box will select all files - as shown in the following screenshot:



This way you don't have to right-click and click again to "Select All", as you wanted.

If you don't like the checkbox solution, you can also always use the hotkey combo of <CTRL>+<A>, but I find the checkbox is quicker, as I don't have to remove my hand from the mouse.
