how do i get my old hotmail site back

earlier tonight i had my original hotmail page and when i went on now it takes me to some lame outlook page.  i hate it.  i want my old one back how do i do this

* Please try a lower page number.

* Please enter only numbers.

* Please try a lower page number.

* Please enter only numbers.

 

Note: The following steps will currently only work if your previous account was @Hotmail.com or @Live.com.

 

    In your browser, navigate to https://account.live.com/ManageAssocIds
    Sign in with your new @outlook.com account.  (if you are already signed in with your outlook.com account this step will not apply)
    Under “Other email addresses” click the Remove link below your previous address.
    Click the Remove button to confirm the message.
    You should now see a message on the page stating, “You've removed an email address from your Microsoft account.”
    Navigate to https://account.live.com/ChangeId.aspx in your browser.
    Verify that “Create a new email address” is selected.
    In the New Microsoft account box, enter your previous address and select your previous domain (hotmail.com or live.com).  Note:  You must enter your previous address or the process will fail.
    Select the Save button.

 

Now you can use your original @hotmail.com or @live.com account to sign into your Microsoft services as you did before renaming to an Outlook.com account.  The @outlook.com address will now be an alias on your account from which you can still send and receive messages within Outlook or Hotmail.

 

Note: This applies to other domains as well, such as .jp, .kr, .es, .au, .ca etc.

Hello,

Unfortunately, you can only switch back your Hotmail page to its original interface and not your Profile, SkyDrive and the People page.

If you are using your Hotmail account to login to your email account, you may click here for the steps on how to switch back to your Hotmail interface.

Thanks!

Hey, Ace_J.!

I don't know if you actually work for Microsoft or not, but could you let them know that no one actually seems to LIKE Outlook.  I can't stand it, and I've been fighting with it for the last week or so.  Why are all of the choices suddenly buttons (Have I magically lost the ability to read???), and what the F is up with the absolute lack of personalization???  Outlook feels as though things are being dumbed down, not improved.  Dislike Outlook, and seriously disliking a previously awesome service.

Hi Saadat Madni,

 

I apologize for not being able to reply to your post in a timely manner. Please be informed that eventually all Hotmail users will be upgraded to Outlook.com. Thus, Outlook.com will be the free email service from Microsoft. We've removed the option to switch back to Hotmail as part of this transition. For more information about Outlook.com, please visit this link.

 

Please feel free to post back if you have other questions or clarifications.

 

Thank you.
