Can I remove the selected duplicates instead of all duplicates?

Yes when you search the duplicates you have option to remove specific or all duplicates.

No duplicate found or nothing happen when I search the duplicates

It’s normally happen when you are using any cache plugin. When the results are not showing up, try to remove or purge all cache.
