is undoubtedly one of the most popular chat programs. In addition to free calls, you can send text messages and perform video calls.
However, when you want to clear a specific conversation on Skype, you will notice that the only solution available in the interface is to clear the entire chat history. If you'd like to delete chat logs for individual contacts
, follow the steps in this tutorial.
Delete Chat History for Individual Contacts
Skype stores all text messages in a database file named main.db
. This file is stored in the user profile of the logged user.
To access the content stored in the main.db file you need to download a special tool, such as SQLite Database Browser
Once you've downloaded the software, launch it. Click File
> Open Database
Browse to find the main.db file (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Skype\Skype username
). Open it, and go to the Browse Data
> Messages or Conversations
When deleting an entire conversation, refer to the Identity
field, which displays the name of the contact. When deleting messages, refer to the body_xml
Select an entry, and click the Delete Record
