Error message Audacity 2.1.3 Win7

Hi folks

Keep getting the following message ‘you can choose multiple items only if they are in the same folder’
Problem is they are!
A workaround is to move them into a new folder, however win 7 sometimes tells me the file names are too long. Please help. thank you
