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

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.

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:


Good luck!

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?
