There can't possibly be no way to do this, right? I must be missing it? It can be done in 2 seconds in Bridge.

Select the images as you would in a File Manager, Ctrl/Shift keys, then hit the space bar to place a check mark in the check mark box

Sorry the above reply was to your other question about selecting images for import.
Quote:
Even if I shift-click to select multiple images, Right Click > Import This only "checks" the last image selected. So it seems there's no way to select multiple images at once (other than "checking" the "all photos" option at the top, of course).

Surely there's a way to do this and I'm just missing it.

As for  this question in the Collections area in the left panel in the Library module select Smart Collections and expand it. In there you should find one item "Edited Images". That works with whatever you have selected in the Catalog or Folders sections.
You can also create your own smart collections for specific cameras and types of files.

Mine did not have that "Smart Collection" by default but this answer did lead me to how to create it for myself, so thank you.
