Q:

How can I sign in to Windows Live Hotmail?

A:

Quick Answer

As of 2014, you can sign in to your Windows Live Hotmail account by using a computer and browser to access any Microsoft email domain. In 2013, Microsoft consolidated its email services under the Outlook brand, so all of the company's email domains redirect to one hub.

Full Answer

  1. Go to Microsoft's webmail portal

    Use an Internet-connected computer or other device and a browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox, and navigate to live.com. Alternatively, go to hotmail.com. As of 2014, all Microsoft email domain names automatically redirect to the live.com webmail portal.

  2. Enter your account information

    Enter your Windows Live Hotmail email address and password into the form fields. Check the Keep Me Signed In box if you are on a private device and want to stay logged into your account.

  3. Click the Sign In button

    If you can't remember your password, click on the Can't Access Your Account link to retrieve it. Otherwise, click the Sign In button to go to your Windows Live Hotmail inbox. If you haven't accessed your account since Microsoft consolidated its services under the Outlook brand, you may be prompted to verify your account. Microsoft sends a single-use code to the alternate email listed on your profile. Once you receive it, click the Sign In With a Single-use Code link to regain access to your account.

    How does someone sign up for a free Hotmail account?

    A:

    It is no longer possible to sign up for a free Hotmail account as Hotmail.com has become Live.com; however, a person can sign up for a Live.com e-mail account by visiting signup.live.com and inputting their first name, last name, username (example@live.com), country/region, ZIP code, birth date, gender, phone number and creating a password. There is also a CAPTCHA that must be filled out to ensure that the data reflects a real person and not a bot.

    A:

    If a user is having trouble signing into an MSN account, the validity of the user's password should first be checked and the user should check to ensure that his Caps Lock is not on. It is important to note that as of 2012, MSN Hotmail is no longer in use and all Hotmail email accounts have been switched over to MSN Outlook at Live.com.
