Stop GoToMeeting From Saving All Chat Logs On Windows 7

I was browsing some folders on my Windows 7 PC today looking for something and noticed a bunch of RTF (Rich Text Format) files in my users “My Documents” folder. After a bit of investigation I realized that they were GoToMeeting chat logs that I wasn’t even aware were being saved. I guess by default the GoToMeeting software saves a chat log for every meeting in rich text format which is annoying because if you are in a bunch of meetings the files just pile up. Things wouldn’t be as bad if the chat logs were appended to the same file but generating a new file for each chat by default just doesn’t seem like the most user friendly way to do things. Follow the simple directions below to turn off the GoToMeeting chat logs.
