Please forgive my ignorance.... I need to search a chat history. Google does not appear to allow us to search chat, so I'm trying to save it to disk so I can search it in a text editor.
I opened a Hangout as if I was going to send a message. Then I clicked on the settings gear. Finally I clicked
Hangout History was already checked):
Unfortunately, I cannot find the history that was just saved, and I have no idea where the Chat program saves it by default. I also tried to save it as an
Archive by checking the box, but all that did was hide the person from me in the Chat area.
Where, exactly, is the chat history saved?
