How to delete messages


Many instant message programs are set, by default, to save your chat history.
This might not be a desirable feature for people who share a computer with others since it could pose a security threat.
Delete the folder in which the history is saved or delete the chat history within the instant message program.
Popular instant messenger programs, such as Yahoo!, Windows Live and Skype, simplify the process of clearing message archives.

Delete archived messages in Yahoo! Messenger.
Open Yahoo! Messenger.
Click on "Messenger" on the toolbar and select "Preferences."
Click "Clear Archive Now" to delete your chat.
Clear chat history in Windows Live Messenger.
Open the program and click the first icon from the right at the top of the box.
This is the "Show Menu" icon. Highlight "File" and click "View Message History."
Select a contact from your list to view messages from or to that contact.
Click "OK."
Click "Delete History" at the top of the "Message History" window.


Erase your conversation history in Skype.
Launch the program and click on "Privacy Settings."
Click the "Clear History" button under the "Keep History For" section.
This will delete all saved conversations.

Clean the message archives in Google Talk.
Click "Settings" on the toolbar and select "Chat" from the list of options.
Click the "Don't Save" option and click "OK."

Delete all message archives with an application.
Programs such as Cyber Scrub, WinClear and ParetoLogic Privacy Controls will delete the history from any instant messaging program, as well as tracking data from your Internet activity. Many of these programs are available for download.

I can't read offline and any messages on screen, and can't send messages too.


Dear Friend,

Please download latest version of Yahoo Messenger....... and use following instructions -

Click the Messenger menu in Messenger.
  1. Select Preferences.
  2. Click the Archive category.
  3. Check the Enable Archiving option. Enable each item that you want to archive. If you'd like to automatically delete archives after a certain number of days, place a check in the box next to Automatically Delete Files Older Than and enter a number.
  4. Click OK at the bottom of the window.
Please Note: Uncheck the Enable Archiving option if you'd like to disable Archiving.
To view your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the archive folder you want to review.
To delete your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the Messages folder and then click the X button if you want to delete your complete Message Archive or select the desired folder and then click X to selectively delete.
A few things to remember:
  • Under the Message menu, you can reply, save, and print messages, as well as view your archiving preferences.
  • Under the Edit menu, you can copy messages to your clipboard or delete messages.
  • Under the View menu, you can enable timestamps.
Please Note: Archives (.dat files located on your system) are encrypted and can only be viewed by the Yahoo! ID that created them. These archives are stored locally on your system, so the conversations held on that specific computer are only accessible from that computer. Once archives are deleted, they're gone, and cannot be retrieved.

Hy i hv problm on yahoo messanger i cant see sent/recived messages in yahoo chat window i hv window 7


Hi,

Before we can determine what happen to your sent/received messaged, We have to check your archive preferences. If you haven't set this up before chances are your old send/receive messages are deleted once you logged off from yahoo messenger.

First Step, go to Messenger Menu -> Preferences->Archive. Make sure the option Save all messages is ticked. If not, this means you old messages are gone and please tick it on.

Second Step, if your Archive Preferences option is save all messages then Select the contact you wish to view the old messages.

Third Step, Press F3 or Click the recent messages. Once you click F3, you will see on top of message window option to view the full archive. Click it and window will pop open. Select the date of the archive you wish to view.

I am not able to view my sent messages in Yahoo Messenger and also not able to view others messeges sent to me. pls slove this problem


To do this, you have to set it to save your messages under Preferences. First, go to the main Yahoo window, the one where you see all of your contacts and click on Messenger. Look through the list until you see Preferences. Click on Preferences and look under the category list for Archive. You have three options there, to save all messages that you send and receive, to save them but to delete them upon exiting the program, or to not save them. The first option is the one to choose if you are wanting to save ALL of the messages you have sent and received from your contacts. Remember to hit the "OK" button when you've finished making your changes.
If you are just wanting to see the most recent messages you've had with someone, open up a chat window, and without typing anything to them, click the F3 button that is at the top of your keyboard. It won't show your entire conversation history, but it will show a fair amount of your most recent conversation. If you're wanting to know what date and time the conversation took place, click the F2 key, also at the top of the keyboard. You can use that key at any time during a conversation to turn timestamps on or off.
There is no way to retrieve past conversations, unfortunately, but if you choose to save messages to archive, you'll be able to view conversations at any time you wish.
I hope this helps you.

My yahoo id is latha2655@yahoo.com. I need to access a "yahoo messenger chat" I had with a friend on 19th, 21st, 22nd and 24th of April 2008. I did not know how to save it. Can you please help...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue

First of all i would like to inform you that chat conversations are not saved on the ayhho server. In case you have enabled archives then the messages would get saved on your computer.
To check the same follow the below steps:
Go to messenger ...preferences... archives, enable this feature, click okay.
To save future messages, mark "yes, save all of my messages", click "apply" and "ok".
The messages are usually saved at the below path:
C\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

In case the above fails you may give a try at using the Yahoo Messenger Chat Recovery Tool
http://www.download3000.com/download_26680.html

If both the above fail then there is hardly a chance that the chat history could be retrieved

Feel free to ask in case you have any queries

If the information i shared above was useful please do rate the solution as Fixya.

To read archived messages right-click the user ID, click message archive.

Can i show my old messege in my yahoomessenger


Yes. In every contact opened, there is a link at the beginning of the chat that says Show recent Messages or you can press F3. Then it will show you if you want to view FULL archive. click that and it will open you the daily conversation with that contact and also the messages of other contacts in the left panel.

This is of course assuming that message history is saved.

To setup your account to save all conversations, Click Messenger from the menu and click Preferences. Click Archive from the left menu and choose to save all conversations.
