Skype keeps a record of all your previous calls and conversations. If you'd rather not leave a trail of when you were last online, you can clear Skype's history to hide any previous calls. Clearing the history will delete all prior records of Skype calls. At the time of publication, there is not a way to erase a single call from your Skype history. If you do not want Skype to save your history in the future, you can change the "Keep History" setting within the Options window.
