Re: How to delete conversation with a single contact

Right now Skype does not allow to delete IM conversation with just one single contact. You can delete IM history with *all* our contacts via your Privacy settings in Skype options.

Keep your Skype up to date

Re: How to delete conversation with a single contact

that's true, you cannot delete conversation of one contact.  delete history, clear history etc., will delete all.

Re: How to delete conversation with a single contact

Deleting conversation with a single contact is the need of many users. They do not want to clear all history because a lot of information in conversations with other contacts is important for use later on.

It would be great if Skype team look into this for further solution.

Thanks,

Re: How to delete conversation with a single contact

I have a question about this, does Skype only save conversations with contacts? Or do they save SkypeMe! Conversations as well? Thanks

Re: How to delete conversation with a single contact

it may not be possible to delete that particular chat conversation without deleting your whole chat histories.  Yet, you can also block that user and report them to abuse@skype.net for possibly misusing Skype services.

If I were to delete chat history, will the chat messages for my contacts also be deleted?

That is, when I 'remove message', the message is removed for me and for the person I was chatting with. But when I delete chat history will both of us lose the chat?

Hopefully the answer is yes, because I want to delete a phone number from a chat message.

Dont do it

Hey,

 

This will delete the complete history of all contact and not just a single contact. Did you try it ?
