Welcome to the community, @Kaori_Hyde!
Yeah, sadly, those checkboxes don’t do much. If you right-click on a record, you’ll see your extremely limited options for what you can do with those checkboxes. For example, you can use them to delete the selected records.
To do what you want to do, you’ll need to create your own checkbox field, and then create a new view which is filtered to show you only the records which have been checked.
