I’ve been using Windows 8 DP/CP/RP and I am now waiting for the RTM. One thing I’ve been wondering was whether or not it is possible to delete multiple message threads from the messaging app. It gets tedious having to delete a lot of them on a laptop without touch.

    After pressing Ctrl+A then keep hold on Ctrl button and then deselect those threads that you want to keep by clicking on them.Then after that delete the selected threads.

        Did you tried selecting all by Ctrl+A and deleting them?

          Yeah. I have. When you press CTRL+A it highlights all, then deselects them so that you can only delete one by one.

    Try holding down left-click on a message. It may show checkboxes. This is just a guess, sorry.
