    Hi everyone :)
    I was just wondering if anyone would be able to help with the translation of the phrase "select the checkbox" from English to German? My two ideas so far were a) Checkbox anklicken or b) Kontrollkästchen ankreuzen??

    The technical term is

    eine Checkbox markieren

    However, I would prefer

    eine Checkbox anwählen/auswählen/anhaken.

    Clicking an already checked checkbox would be

    eine Checkbox abwählen/deselektieren.
    den Haken/ das Häkchen in der Checkbox entfernen.
