Probably your graphics driver is not adequate.  You can check what driver Chimera is using with Chimera menu Help / Report a Bug under “Gathered information” it will list OpenGL Renderer and Version.  If it says Microsoft GDI 1.1 then you are using 1990s graphics and Chimera won’t do selection.  You would need to update your driver.

When I try doing Ctrl-click or Shift-Ctrl-click to select an atom, I don't select anything at all (nothing is highlighted green as its supposed to when something is selected).
