    Hi, how can I delete completed games from my games list? In my games list I have a lost game and a won game, I archived both of them but they still appear in my games list.

    How do I remove them?

    Thanks in advance.

    I use the Inbox Folder as my default folder. Whenever I've finished one game I move it to the Archive Folder.

    However, if I use AllGames as my default folder, then I would see what you described.

    You can't delete completed games because they are part of the game history for both your opponents and yourself.

    I move all of my completed games into an archive folder, so they're available if I need to look at them, but otherwise out of site the rest of the time.

    You can customize extra folders if you prefer some other system of storing your games, as well.

    Welcome to the site!

    If you archive to a folder are they still available for others to see?

    Yes, although they only see the second board (game history) and no ingame messages.

    I don't think the ingame messages are ever viewable to anyone except the persons actually playing the game.
