If you already signed up for and gone through the whole process of setting up a Hotmail account, then you’re probably thinking that logging in to your Hotmail.com account is next thing that you should do. If that’s what you’re thinking, you’re absolutely right, because you need to access Microsoft’s webmail service to check your emails, compose and send messages, manage your account information and calendar, plus more.
You can follow the Hotmail login instructions below to learn how to access your account in a truly simple, easy, and secure way, that will allow you to bypass any problems or issues with your mail box if they should they occur. The Hotmail.com sign in process is easy, and the steps detailed below can be followed by anyone who knows how to read, use a computer, and browse the web.
However, before we move on, you should know that Hotmail.com is now Outlook.com, which is better known as just Outlook. Despite changing its name, Microsoft’s webmail is still commonly referred to as Hotmail. I think that name was around for so long that people simply got used to it, I for one always type Hotmail.com in my address bar, and that says a lot because I’m a huge technology freak. Microsoft’s email service is not just known and called Outlook, its also known as Live.com, Microsoft Online, and some people even think that it’s Outlook Office 365, which is not by the way.

Having Hotmail Login Problems or Issues?
If you had problems or issues accessing your Hotmail, Live, or Outlook account, then that’s probably because you didn’t enter your username or password correctly. Keep in mind that passwords are case sensitive, so make sure that you’re not typing your sign in credentials incorrectly due to a caps lock error, typos, or something like that.
If you’re sure that you are entering your Hotmail.com sign in information correctly, then you’ll have to go to the login page and click on the “Can’t access your account?” link, then select why you think you couldn’t access your account, click “Next”, enter your email address on the next screen, enter the captcha code, click “Next” one more time, select how you would like to receive your Hotmail password recovery information, copy the code sent to your recovery option, now repeat the previous instructions but instead click on the “I Have a Code” link this time, enter the code when prompted, and voila!
