How do I clear my Recent conversations in Skype for Mac OS X?

You can clear all Recent conversations from the sidebar, or remove individual conversations. This does not permanently delete conversations; they will still be available in your history.

To remove all Recent conversations from the sidebar, go to the main menu and select Conversations > Clear Recent…

To remove a single conversation from the sidebar, go to the sidebar and right-click the conversation you want to remove, then select Close.

You will need to remove a conversation from Favorites before it can be removed from the sidebar. To remove a conversation from Favorites, right-click the conversation in the Favorites section, and then select Remove from Favorites.
