Hi all,

 

It is easy to delete your chat history.  All you have to do is:

 

  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. In the menu bar, click Skype then Privacy…
  3. Under Keep history for, click Clear history.

That's it.

If you don't want to delete your ENTIRE history, there's a tool out there called SkypeX.  It lets you choose messages or conversations and delete them individually.


You can get it right from the developer's site: http://bryancockerham.com/skypex-delete-skype-messages

had the samed problem and looked around.  There are a couple third party options if you want to delete single chats like skypex but i went with a great cheaper tool called chatzap.  I think if you google "chatzap iscreamsoftware" it comes up.

Re: How do you delete old IM messages from your messages page?

the exact procedure (if possible) depends on the Skype version you are using, in what computer OS or device.  So specify the computer OS or device you are using in order to get accurate responses.
