Description

See attached screenshot.
The typical semantics of checkboxes is that you can select several of them (or none).

This does not apply here: You can only select one file for being the current file, so radiobuttons would be more suitable here.

"Problem" persists.
Instead of a radio button, no buttons at all would also work.
