Ctrl+click is like Window's shift+click in the explorer - selects everything from point to point. Shift selects additively. What are the names of their controls in the preferences menu? I want to swap them (so that ctrl+click adds to selection).
Ctrl + Click used to select shortest path.
Try to change it to Shift + Click, then change Select in Mesh to Ctrl + Click.
I didn`t change every other options in selection, but it is ok for me
