1) Highlight the text with your mouse

2) Right click

3) Select 'Remove Message'

 

A dialogue box will pop up asking for verfication of message deletion to which you simply click 'Remove' and it's done. You can also edit your message in this way.

 

NOTE to the oblivious: You can only remove/edit your own IM's, not the other person's. ;P

Re: Delete Instant Messages

Hi everyone,

 

Skype still lacks feature that will remove old messages selectively and completely with your chat partners, so do a serach for a 3rd party app like

DeleteSkypeHistory (standard ed.) http://deleteskypehistory.com/standard-edition/index.php

Hope this will help u.
