Here’s our guide about hiding conversations on Skype.
How to hide a conversation from your chats list on Skype
If you want to remove some conversations from your chats list but don’t want to delete their contents, you can choose to hide them. In this way, they won’t appear on your chats list until you receive a new message.
You can hide conversations whether you’re using Skype on your phone or desktop. In our step-by-step tutorials below, we’ll show you the steps to do so on both devices.
On your computer:
- Launch the Skype web or desktop app and sign in to your Microsoft account.
- Browse the chats list and right-click on the conversation that you want to hide.
- On the menu that appears on your screen, select “Hide conversation.”
After hiding a conversation, it won’t appear on your chats list unless you receive a new message. However, you can use the search bar to look for the conversation if you want.
After searching the conversation, you can unhide it to make the chat visible on your chats list again. Until that happens, they’ll stay hidden from your other chats.
On the Skype mobile app:
- After signing in to the mobile app, browse your chats list for the conversation that you want to delete.
- Tap and hold into a conversation to open its options.
- Select “Hide conversation” on the menu.
As we mentioned earlier, hidden conversations won’t appear on your chats list until you receive a new message. Also, you can unhide a conversation after looking for it using the search bar.
To wrap things up
Now that you know how to hide your chats on Skype, you can remove some of your inactive conversations from your chats list without deleting its message history. If you ever change your mind, you can use the search feature to look for your hidden conversations.
Always remember, when you receive a new message from a hidden conversation, it will become visible on your active chats list again.
