WalterNL,

 

Run Skype >> WinKey + C >> Settings >> Options >> Clear History.

Re: how to delete messages on windows 8

This still does not really answer the question.

 

That is to clear everything.

I don't want that.

 

 

See with the img i posted above, you can delete individual things that you have said.

Re: how to delete messages on windows 8

You have to use SkypeX.  It lets you delete the messages you want, without deleting your whole history.  If you rely on Skype like me, there's no way you can clear your whole history without losing important information, links, records, etc.  Do a google search for SkypeX, or get it straight from the developer here: http://bryancockerham.com/skypex-delete-skype-messages

 

Good luck!

features from the skype for other versions of windows on the skype for windows 8.1

There are features such as deleting individual messages, changing font type and size as well as screen sharing that are not available on this new version. will they be integrated into the windows 8.1 version in the future?
