Not sure if anyone can help but here's the deal. I just updated Skype and now I can't select multiple messages at once. Previous versions let me do this. Not sure if Skype removed this so I want to make sure. Can anyone help?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are on Skype 8, most of the functionality of Skype 7 has been removed despite vociferous criticism since mid 2018.  You may be able to archive your Skype 7 conversations but other than that you can only copy ONE MESSAGE at a time.  Complaining might help, it certainly won’t harm anything!

    Check the all settings. It might happened that, when you opened new conversations, the windows might open as separate window. After login, you can click view from menu bar, and then select default view.

    Please note most of the functionality of 'Classic Skype' has been removed with Skype 8, despite vociferous criticism since mid 2018.  It may be possible able to archive previous Skype 7 conversations (See main window settings).  Other than that only ONE MESSAGE at a time may be copied.

    Now that it's owned by Microsoft who knows what they did or will do to the application. You can check out the Skype Customer Support page on Microsoft's website.
