How to log into my MSN hotmail

Updated March 23, 2017

Hotmail is a web e-mail service from MSN. In this technologically advanced world you can get your Hotmail e-mail forwarded to other e-mail addresses, to your phone or other devices, but sometimes you may just want to check it online from the original website. Using your web browser of choice, you can access your Hotmail in its original form.

Open your web browser and navigate to the MSN home page.

Click "Hotmail" at the top of the website.

Enter your Windows Live ID (you must enter your full e-mail address) and password. The Windows Live ID is also your Hotmail ID. Use the "Forgot your password" link to reset your password if you forget it.

Click "Sign In."

View your inbox by clicking "Inbox" on the left of your Hotmail home page.
