I personally hate the selection window on MAX 2013+ versions, therefore did a bit of research on how to bring back my loved H shortcut selection window as in 3dsmax 2009

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Get a tool like “Everything (http://www.voidtools.com/)” to search within your hard drive or use the windows search to find all the instances of this file: “CurrentDefaults.ini”
  2. Open them on a text editor like Notepad++ (https://notepad-plus-plus.org)
  3. Use the Search and replace function and replace this line on all the files:
    [Scene Explorer]

    for this one

    [Scene Explorer]
  4. Make sure you replaced the ones in C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2015 – 64bit\ENU\en-US\defaults\MAX folder
  5. Iniciar MAX
