Too much going on in your Facebook Chat instant messages? Sometimes, after a few minutes of chatting, you might have enough messages to keep you scrolling to find the end of your conversation, especially if your contact is sending larger blocks of text one right after the other. Here is a simple way to clear Facebook Chat history from your IM window:

  1. Scroll to the top of your Facebook Chat window.
  2. Click the link titled "Clear Chat History."

This action will clear all the text and mini-feed information which preceded the last message sent (including that message), giving you a clean chat window by which you can continue to instant message with your contact. This feature does not, however, clear the conversation on your contact’s end of the chat.
