  • Right click on the chat you would like to delete.
  • Click Delete chat from the menu.
  1. In the confirmation window, click Delete again.

When you delete a chat, all the messages in the conversation are deleted, and it will no longer show in your recent chats. The chat will be deleted from that specific device, but will still be visible on other devices unless you delete it from there too.

Look at those other two links i sent in that message. You may be accessing it that way.

If they dont help you, tell me if you are using a downloaded version of skype on your pc, or in outlook.com or other way you access it.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
