I want to select multiple overlapping islands all at once in UV Editing mode. 3dsmax can do this by clicking and dragging a window around my element, but I couldn't find a comparable function in Blender. Not being able to select in UV Editing by clicking and dragging a window is a huge missing feature, or I am not sure how to find it :/

See below:

You can use Box select, which is activated with B:

You can also use C for Circle Select and CtrlLMB for Lasso Select.

For more on selection tools in the UV editor, see the wiki.
