In SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) after compared the schema, I want to update few changes of mine only (as red-circled in the screenshot).

But there are many other changes are listed in the window, I need to manually uncheck all the other items.

Is there any option to uncheck all or invert selection the items?

For those coming here from Google looking for a solution to this (like me), I found the answer here.

All you have to do is right click on the section and ta-da, you can Include or Exclude all objects depending on the existing state of the objects.

In this case, section means the Delete, Change, and Add parent folders in the schema compare window.

With Shift-Leftmousebutton you can select multiple lines. With Ctrl-Leftmousebutton you can toggle individual lines from the selection. With Rightmousebutton you can get the popup menu with Include/Exclude options. Multiple Select/Deselect
