Have you ever written a message in Skype only to find out that you had made a typo or perhaps said something you really didn’t want to say? Today, quite by accident, I found out that any message you write is capable of being edited. It’s very simple…
To automatically bring up the last message you typed, simply press your up arrow and that complete message will appear in your text box. Change your message as you choose and once again press enter. The corrected message will appear back in the original place as if you had entered it that way to begin with. To the right of the time on that particular message you will see a very small pencil in grey. This is the only indication that the message had been edited. If you hover over the pencil, the time of the edit will appear. NOTE: The up arrow edit shortcut only works for the very last message you typed.
Now for the good news. ANY message that you type can be edited as well. Highlight whichever message you want to edit – whole or part of the message, no matter where it is placed. Right click and then click on edit. The area you have highlighted will appear in the text box. Correct as you need and once you press enter, your new message will appear where the old one was.
Experiment! It’s fun… and enjoy!
