Re: How to clear chat history ?

Hi, i want it to work like live messenger. i.e when you close the window, all history is cleared.

secondly, or i must open another topic, when i sign in in two places, i do no want my chat msgs to appear in both places. i do not want my colleagues in office to view when i am typing on my mobile when i'm away.

I don't think that's possible, but that's just me. Log out of your desctop account when you aren't using it

Not by using Skype application, but this is possible with 3rd party programs as e.g. SkypeX:

With very little technical experience, you can also edit your main.db chat databse:

Re: How to clear chat history ?

arghh this question drives me mad and I have tried to help a couple of other users who have mentioned the same problem.  Why o why havent skype added this what appears to be a basic function is beyond me but the only solution seems to be from a third party application like the one mentioned above (which was still in testing the last time i looked) or chatzap (which is what I use and works great) found here iscreamsoftware.com.

Skype can clear all history at once. To delete certain messages (by time or by contacts) the easiest way is 3rd party apps like DeleteSkypeHistory
