This is probably due to date settings of your machine. If date is set to some earlier date then skype does not list new chat messages. At least that is what happened to me.

How do i delete conversations on skype i already try searching it up but i don't get it...?


if you sent Skype messages less than 1 hour ago, just right click on a message and select "remove" menu item.

If messages are older you need a special tool like "Delete Skype History Network Edition. The program deletes messages not only on your computer and mobiles but your partners' devices as well. Delete Skype messages on all devices

How cai i remove a message that i wrote to afriend at skype 1day ago?


You cannot delete or edit any chat message sent, even if it has NOT been delivered yet after 1 hour from the time the chat message was created, the only exception to this is if the message is for/sent to/trying to be sent to a multi-chat ("A chat that has more than 2 people in it") and you are the creator of that multi-chat.

My messages just sit there when I hit send untill the oerson I;m trying to send it sends one to me.Then my message wil go through


Skype keeps the messages on its servers until the person logs in and reads them. If you want to send other types of messages use an email client. Even if emails are delivered to an email address, they will not be read until the person logs in.

The message that was sent to was really delayed. The delay was 1 day. how come?


Skype is well known to have delays in messages. It's still a free system with several million users, and has main networks in Europe, which is decentralized to some. Sometimes skype has problems displaying messages immediately, colloquially called 'lag'. Although 1 day is a lot, it is not unheard of. If there is a lot of information passing through the skype servers during peak hours, it is prioritized. Good luck. There are several great alternatives available, including MSN, AOL and Yahoo IM.

No record of messaging


Please try using your Windows Control Panel Add/Delete programs and delete Skype, please be careful, when prompted to leave your Skype files, for history.

Then please try re-installing from here:
