Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have been mapping an old town with narrow pedestrian streets, which I've marked as highway=pedestrian. Now I have concluded that highway=footway would be better (except for the two or three larger, commercial streets). Do I need to select them one by one and change them one by one? I tried to select many at the same time on iD using Shift+Click, and it does select them, but I didn't find a way to tell it "change highway to footway for all selected elements".

Use Josm for such tasks and then return to your preferred editor when done.

Thanks. I did it with Josm.

Yes, agree with what @nevw said - we don't have a way in iD to apply the same tags to multiple things. I'd recommend you use JOSM or level0/overpass for something like this.
