just add a line to  oncreate event of your form :

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
tstringgrid(dbgrid1).Options:=[goFixedVertLine,goFixedHorzLine,goVertLine,goHorzLine,goRangeSelect,goColSizing,goThumbTracking];
end;

 Sorry, I did not read the question carefully....

DBGrid.Options := [dgEditing,dgAlwaysShowEditor,dgTitles,dgIndicator,dgColumnResize,dgColLines,dgRowLines,dgTabs,dgConfirmDelete,dgCancelOnExit,dgMultiSelect];

is impossible multiselection of columns, but it is possible multiselection of rows in DBGrid.
