How to change your Hotmail password – nyc email support

Changing your Hotmail password is not as straightforward as you would think.  There is no easy change password link when you first log in.  It’s a more round-about-approach you have to take.  You might want to change your password, by the way, if you think your email account has been hacked; you don’t want your ex-friend or boy/girlfriend to have it any more; or otherwise.  Please note it is good to change your password every year for computer security purposes so it is safe from potential hackers.

Here are the steps to change your Hotmail password:

  1. Sign into your Windows Live Hotmail or Hotmail account.
  2. Select your name at the top-right of the home page.
  3. Click View Your Account from the pop-up list.
  4. You may be asked to sign in again.  If so, enter your current password and Sign in.
  5. In Account Summary, click on Change next to the password link, which is right below Password reset information.
  6. Enter your old password, then type in your new password twice and click Save.

Hopefully, this email support tip will save you time if you need to change your Hotmail password.  Keep in mind that Hotmail will not offer technical support if you have a free email account so checking out the Hotmail forum is your best best for any other technical issues.
