In Elementor, the “Select” field type allows you to create a dropdown field where users can select one or more options. By default, when the “Multiple” option is enabled for a select field, users need to press the “Ctrl” button (on Windows) or “Cmd” button (on Mac) to select multiple options. However, if you want to allow users to select multiple options without pressing the “Ctrl” or “Cmd” button, you can use a bit of JavaScript to accomplish this.

Here is an example of how you can achieve this:

  1. Add a “Select” field to your form in Elementor and enable the “Multiple” option.
  2. Next, you will need to add some JavaScript to your website that will remove the need for users to press the “Ctrl” or “Cmd” button when selecting multiple options. You can do this by adding the following code to your theme’s functions.php file or in the custom JavaScript option in your Elementor form settings:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
$(‘select[multiple]’).on(‘mousedown’, function(e) {
if( === ‘OPTION’) {

var select = this;
var scroll = select.scrollTop; = !;

setTimeout(function() { select.scrollTop = scroll; }, 0);


This code uses jQuery to attach an event listener to all select elements with the “multiple” attribute. When a user clicks on an option in the select element, the event listener will prevent the default behavior and toggle the selected state of the option that was clicked. The selected state of the option will change without the user having to press the “Ctrl” or “Cmd” button.

This should make the multiple select field in Elementor to not require the control button to select multiple elements. Note that the above example is a basic example, you can always add additional features to the script such as handling the selection of options with the keyboard and styling the option if it is selected or not.
