    Find and press the Skype tile to open the application. We can see the tile near the middle of the screen on this device. It has a blue background with the Skype logo in the middle. If the Skype tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. We want to demonstrate how to delete an individual message in a chat when using the Skype application, and to do that we first need a chat.

    To find a chat, we need to find a contact in the "recent" section. It will say "recent" at the top of the screen in a darker blue text.

    We want to be in the "chat" section. It will say "chat" in the top left-hand corner in dark blue. If it's not dark blue, swipe across until it is. Once we're in the chat section, we can delete an individual message. Perhaps there is something that we said that we regretted, or it doesn't need to be there anymore, but we don't want to delete the whole chat. For whatever reason, this will allow us to delete a message.

    Now we can see it says, "this message has been removed". Therefore, we have successfully removed the message from this chat. It is important to remember that we can only delete our own messages, we cannot delete any messages written by somebody else.
