How to Recover Deleted Yahoo Messenger Messagesby WayneC
Yahoo Messenger is an instant-messaging service that allows users to converse one-on-one with friends and family over the Internet. The service allows a user to keep a list of friends and family to make it easier to start a conversation with them. Conversations take place in a conversation window. When this window closes, the entire conversation closes along with it. Opening a conversation window with that contact again creates a new, blank conversation window. However, the conversation is not deleted after the window is closed, and it is possible to view past conversations.
Open Yahoo Messenger. Look at the list of contacts and select the contact whose messages you are recovering.
Move the cursor over the arrow to the right of the selected contact's name and select "View Message History" from the menu that appears.
When the conversation window appears, select "View More History."
Look through the conversations listed in the "My History" tab that appears. Each time you click a conversation, the entire conversation appears at the bottom of the My History tab.
- You must know the correct username and password to enter Yahoo Messenger.
- You can reply to the contact you select, though this starts a new conversation with that contact instead of continuing the conversation viewed.
