    for keyboard, hold down the <CTRL> key and click on each email and then hit the button to delete or press the <DELETE> key.

    for touch, swipe at each email to highlight multiple emails and then hit the button to delete them.

    ...also try the shift key to select first and last in a page, or maybe five in a row, selects all in list.

    Or just right click on the emails your want to delete and the click the Trashcan icon. You can also use the Folder Options to empty the folder (as in delete all email).

    I'm emptying it usually with simple keystrokes, CTRL + A to select all messages and DEL to delete them.

    Tested again. Works on both Windows 8 computers I have nearby, as well as on a few virtual ones. Click a message in Inbox to set focus, press CTRL + A and it selects all messages.
