How to clear your message history in Skype

Like many other programs, Skype has its drawbacks. One of them is the slowdown of the application, provided that the program has been used for a long time and during this period a large history of messages has accumulated. Read on to learn how to delete message history in Skype.

Clearing Skype chat is a good way to speed up your loading time. This is especially true for owners of normal hard drives, not SSDs.
