How to troubleshoot message deletion issues

If you’re having trouble deleting messages on your Macbook, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue.

First, make sure that you’re using the latest version of the Messages app. If you’re not, you may be experiencing compatibility issues that are preventing you from deleting messages.

If you’re using an older version of the app, try uninstalling it and then reinstalling the latest version from the App Store.

If that doesn’t work, try restarting your computer. This will often fix small software issues that can cause problems with deleting messages.

If you still can’t delete messages after restarting your computer, you may need to delete the entire conversation. To do this, open the Messages app and find the conversation you want to delete. Select it and then click on the “Delete Conversation” button at the top of the screen. Confirm that you want to delete the conversation by clicking on “Delete Conversation” again in the pop-up window.

How to find deleted messages

Open the Trash folder. To do this, click on the Finder icon in your dock, then click on “Trash” in the left hand sidebar.

In the Trash folder, you should see all of the messages that you have deleted. To restore a message (or multiple messages), simply select them and click on the “Restore” button.

Alternatively, you can right-click on a message and select “Put Back”.

How to undelete messages

When you delete a message, it’s moved to the Trash folder. To undelete the message, follow these steps:

1. Open the Trash folder.

2. Select the message you want to undelete, then click Move to Inbox.
