Currently, in order to set the build action for multiple files in XS you either have to right-click and set each file's build action, or select multiple files from the solution explorer's tree and set the build action. This becomes very tedious and time consuming if you have a large file tree structure since you have to first expand every branch in the structure, then select all the files (shift-click works) before setting the build action. Think of a large tree structure that is deep and each folder has various subfolders, this can take a while and is more prone to errors if you miss expanding something.
Ideally, a much nicer solution would be to be able to select a build action on a folder and have it auto-recurse through the subfolders and set the build action for all files. That way I only have to apply my build action setting to the top level folder(s).
