    Skype archives your chats for you and stores them locally on your computer, if you have enabled this option. Chat histories are not stored anywhere on the Skype network. In other words, no one else will ever be able to see any of your chat histories except you and the person you are chatting with. Chats are archived as a convenience to you, so that you can easily keep track of your chat conversations on Skype – think of it as sent mail for Skype.

    To enable or disable this option go to “Skype” > “Preferences” > “Chat” and select your choice of chat history settings.

    To view archived chat sessions for a specific contact, select the contact from your Contact List and go to “Contacts” > “View Chat History”. A browser window will open showing your previous chat sessions with the selected contact.

    You can clear your chat history by selecting “Delete All Chat Messages” under the “Chat” menu.

    Please note that calls are not archived and therefore won’t be shown in chat history.

    If you want to backup your chat history or move it to another computer you can find it in a folder with the same name as your Skype Name in “username/Library/Skype”

    To remove Skype chat history from your PC permanently, go for the program deleteskypehistory

    Remember that this program will delete only your Skype history, not the other side history!

    Good luck

    Hi! Larry is right, but talks about Standard Edition of the program.

    There is already Network Edition.

    I bought the Net version and am very satisfied. The program deleted my Skype history and in my chat partners and on my iphone and galaxy tab. Hope it will be useful for others.

    Open Skype. Enter your id and password. There will be an option called "tool". Then follow this - Tools - Options - IM Setting - Clear history..

    This will help you to delete all your message history.
