Edited by Thor, Gordon, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to delete chat history in the Skype application while using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
Press the power button on the right side of the phone to turn the phone on and display the lock screen.
Swipe the lock screen up to unlock the phone and display the Home screen.
Find and tap the Skype tile to open the Skype application. The Skype tile has a blue background with the Skype logo in white, which is a circle with a blue "S" in it. If Skype is not pinned to the home screen, swipe from right to left to view the App menu. Find Skype in the App menu and tap it.
Navigate through the application to find a chat to delete. There are two options to do this. The default screen is the "recent" screen, which is labeled at the top of the screen in a darker blue text. In the "recent" screen, we will find contacts that we have interacted with recently. Alternatively, swipe from right to left to view the "people" screen. All of our contacts will be listed in the "people" screen.
Tap on a contact to view the chat history with that contact.
There will be two sections available, "chat" and "profile". The default will be "chat", where we can view the chat history with that contact. We will use the "chat" screen to delete the chat history.
Tap the menu icon in the bottom right corner of the screen to open the options menu. The options menu appears as an ellipsis, or three dots.
Tap "clear history" to delete the chat history with the current contact.
When prompted, tap "OK". We will be notified that chat history will be cleared from this device only. It is important to remember that re-installing Skype will restore the chat history with the current contact. Tap "cancel" to keep the chat history.
Messages and call history will all be deleted.
This concludes the tutorial on how to delete chat history in the Skype application while using the Microsoft Lumia 535. If you have any questions or comments, please post them in the comments section below. Thank you for watching VisiHow.
