Archive Skype Conversations

When you archive your Skype conversations, the conversations are not deleted a set duration of time. For example, if you want to keep conversations for 30 days, all your Skype conversations will remain in the chat history for a month, and will be automatically removed after that time. Likewise, if you never want any of your Skype conversations to be removed, the conversations could remain in the chat history forever if configured accordingly.

Here is how you can archive your Skype conversations (keep the chat history forever):

    ■Log on to your Windows PC.
    ■Locate and double-click the Skype icon to launch the application.
    ■Login to your Skype account by either using Microsoft account or your Skype Name.

    ■Assuming that you are using Skype Name to log in, provide your login credentials in the available fields and click Sign in.

    ■From the opened interface, click the Tools menu from the menu bar at the top.
    ■From the displayed list, click options.

    ■On the opened Skype Options box, click Privacy from the left pane.
    ■From the Privacy Settings section in the right pane, click the Keep History For drop-down list.

    ■From the displayed list, click to select the time duration for how long you would like Skype to keep the conversations. (The Never option is selected in this demonstration to keep the chat history forever.)
    ■ Once done, click Save from the bottom to archive your chat history.
