The AOL software package doesn't maintain a history of instant messages. It's unacceptable to retrieve a conversation once the IM window is closed. However, you'll be able to use the Log Manager feature within the AOL software package to save lots on and so retrieve a selected chat conversation.

To start an IM log

1. Click the File menu, and so click Log Manager.

Log Manager

2. Beneath Session Log, open Log.

Chat Log Session Log

3. Navigate to the folder within which you wish the log file keep. Within the File name box, kind the name you wish to save lots of the IM log with, and so click Save.

Note: The default name for the log file is session.log.

Open Log

4. Check the box next to Log Instant Message conversations (SessionLogs ONLY).

Log Instant Message conversations

5. Click X on the higher right to shut the work window.
