Paths have been in Photoshop for a very long time. And for a very long time, we were able to select paths using Direct Selection Tool or Path Selection Tool.
However, now in Photoshop CC you can select multiple paths by clicking and dragging with Direct Selection tool or Path Selection tool. But it gets even better.
Now in Photoshop CC you can even select multiple paths that are on separate layers!
And, when you are selecting multiple paths while clicking and dragging, now in Photoshop CC you can limit your selection by selecting All Layers or Active Layers from the Select drop-down menu in the Options bar.
