Select images while layer is collapsed (not hidden)

Would anybody know of a way to select a range of images in a layer while the layer is in the collapsed state (i.e thinner, no thumbnail) in the timeline?

When the layer is expanded you click and drag just below the images you want to select. However when you collapse the layer (to save space and gain the ability to see the structure of more layers at one time), that little area goes away. If you click - drag on a layer in this state it shifts the whole layer in the timeline.

Holding down Shift or Ctrl or both doesn't change the behaviour.

If holding down a modifier key while click - dragging would select the images - that would solve it as far as I'm concerned. Very simple.
