Procedure To Delete Windows Messenger History

One of the most valued and protected aspect of a human being is his or her privacy. Under normal circumstances the invasion of privacy is usually not tolerated by anyone who wishes to keep things private, especially conversations. It is a never-ending concern while you use the Internet, especially when you are using a public computer for the purpose of chatting online using popular programs such as Windows Live Messenger, previously known as MSN Messenger.

Whatever may be the nature of communication or conversation, whether your chats are related to business or personal topics, it is likely that you do not want others to snoop about and read your chat logs when you are finished. Sometimes you’d want these conversations to be removed. You can delete your history on Windows Live Messenger to ensure that your privacy is protected. Here are the Windows online support instructions to help delete Windows Messenger History.

Windows online support Instructions
  • You need to launch Windows Live Messenger and then log in. (If you have not installed it, you can install it from online)
  • You need to click on the Show Menu icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  • Then you can click on Tools, and then click on Options.
  • You need to click on the Messages tab.
  • After that, you need to click inside the box labeled Save my conversations in this folder, and use the mouse to highlight all of the text in the box.
  • Then, Right-click on the highlighted text and click on Copy
  • You can click on Start and then click on Computer in Windows Vista and Windows 7 or My Computer in Windows XP.
  • Then you need to right-click in the Address bar at the top of the window. Then click on Paste and press the Enter key on your keyboard. This brings you directly to the folder where each history file for Windows Live Messenger is stored.
  • You can delete every file in the folder, and then empty the Recycle Bin. You have now removed the Windows Live Messenger history from your computer.
Now, you do not have to worry about others snooping about and reading your chat logs. But, again you need to do it regularly. Better you develop a habit of clearing your history on a regular basis so that nobody can read your conversations when you have finished.
