I would like to remove some of the Video and Audio Listings displayed in MacOS FaceTime. Can this be done?

In particular, I am wanting to delete the top three entries of the attachment, which were unidentified calls made to my iPhone 4S

I believe if you simply Right click* on an entry in the list, you will be given the opportunity to select Remove from Recents for that entry.

* or Control click with a one button mouse, being the same action.

Roam,

Thanks you! ,you were correct in a way . I originally tried to select an entry and hit the delete key with no success. Selecting the Audio entry, right clicking the mouse and selecting ]Remove from Recents[, deleted the entry. But those steps did not work for the Video entries. For Video entries; select the Video entry, then swipe to the left with the mouse and click the Red Delete tab.

Thanks again,
Blazer88

Ah I missed the fact you mentioned this was an iPhone. Good work you figured it out.
You know when I got a smart phone several months ago, I had no idea how to use the touch screen to answer the phone. After consulting the scant online manual, I learned to answer the phone by swiping the icon to the right, as you already know about this. New technology comes with new methods, always changing. :)

Roam,
My Apologies! Actually, my problem occurred on a year old iMac, MacOS High Sierra, with FaceTime. You are right though, FaceTime was mainly an IOS App, as was IMessage. Now both have become MacOS Apps. Steps often used to resolve an issue on one platform do not always carry other to a new platform. You provided the initial step to resolve the Audio portion and I just did a little tinkering to resolve the Video portion. Thanks again, I do not think I would have solve deleting the Video entry without your recommendation to solve deleting the Audio entry. Changes will always happen and there's no changing that!
