Facebook, How to See Archived Messages

Facebook, How to See Archived Messages, whenever you use the archive function to store a chat conversation or private message on Facebook, the site removes it from the Messages Inbox and Other pages and then transfers it to a separate Archived section. It can be a bit difficult to find and navigate this section since Facebook does not show the title of the section link next to the “Inbox” or “Other” link titles. The design of the Messages screen is not wide enough to display all titles. Instead, you need to access a drop-down list that offers additional options to see archived messages.

Step 1

Go to your Facebook Home screen and in the Favorites section, select the Messages option to open the Messages screen. Your chat conversation history and private messages are automatically displayed by Facebook in a date list format below the Search field.

  • On the bottom left of the screen, open Facebook Messenger, login, and press the Home button.
  • Tap the search bar on the top of the screen and type the name of the recipient of the archived messages. If you’re searching for a chat party, enter the name of any member to check for it.
  • Then the chats that are archived will appear. See it and tap it.
