I have spent a lot of time and I cannot figure a way to delete all the recent history from a chat conversation in the new skype windows 8 from the app store.
even when I restart/shutdown, I come back and the recent history stills there.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Skype >> Win + C >> Settings >> Options >> Clear History.
The clear history button doesn't work. At best it clears one party's conversation but retains the incoming converstion. This app is really awful !!!
You can also try to delete the main.db file (history database file)
Seriously. I have a hard time gettting the app to update on time when I recieve a new Im, cant right click and delete a single IM window, cant unlink my microsoft account without deleting the whole thing. Its ridiculous! These issues need to be addressed.
I've been chasing Skype support and it seems on Windows 8 there isn't a fix for deleting conversations but they assure me that this will be fixed in the next update.... just don't know when that update will happen. It needs to be soon !
The solution offered by deleting the entire history is not appropriate. I need to retain some chats and delete unwanted ones.
is there a fix for this?
