SkypeLogView reads the log files created by Skype application, and displays the details of incoming/outgoing calls, chat messages, and file transfers made by the specified Skype account. You can select one or more items from the logs list, and then copy them to the clipboard, or export them into text/html/csv/xml file.
This utility works on any version of Windows starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 8. You don't have to install Skype in order to use this utility. You only need the original log files created by skype, even if they are on an external drive.
