Skype currently does not allow to delete just the local history of an individual conversation. You can delete all your conversation history open the menu Tools > Options > IM & SMS and then press the "Clear history" button. NB: This will only delete the local conversation history. If you sign in to your Skype account from a different device the last 30 days of conversation history will be synchronized from the cloud chat servers.

 

Tipp:

If you want to delete an individual instant message you can do that up to 2 hours after you sent it. See the section "Useful things you can do in an IM conversation" here: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA3271/how-do-i-send-an-instant-message-in-skype-for-windows-deskto...

Click on Tools, then Options.

Then select Privacy.

Then select Show Advanced Options.

Then select either Clear History, and/or how long you want history kept for.
