Exporting emails from Hotmail

I have been unable to find a way to export a folder from Hotmail with emails in it to my desk top.  I have tried using the "Import and Export" under the File menu.  Then check "Export to a File" and it takes me to a page with the choices: "Favorites, Feeds and Cookies".  What am I doing wrong?

You are exporting from Internet Explorer which isn't a mail client but a browser.

If you want to export your Hotmail account to your desktop, then you'll need to configure your account in a mail client with export capabilities like Microsoft Office Outlook, Windows Live Mail or Thunderbird.
