Clearing IM and Call History in Skype


Skype is a very popular IM and Voice chat application that has a fast growing user community. It provides high voice clarity and so many other features like IM, file transfer, photo sharing and much more features through the various Extras (Plugins). Skype by default stores all our call history and IM chat history. This can be a problem sometimes. The whole window looks pretty messy with all that old chats and conversation histories. And whenever you send an IM to a person you get annoyed by the old messages.

Skype developers havent included the History Clear option explicitly. But it is buried within the options window. But it is easy to clear it.

Just goto Tools -> Options. Now in the Options window, select Privacy tab from the right pane. Then select privacy settings sub tab. In that under the third section you have got the option to clear History and to specify for how long history must be stored.

Thank you,
