    Hotmail


    I have two HOTMAIL accounts, and I am having all the trouble in the world trying to open my second HOTMAIL account. This WIN 8 is ridiculous and messy.

    I have tried to open second HOTMAIL after signing out of first HOTMAIL, and it keeps on going back to this account. I tried FILE-NEW SESSION to no avail.

    How in the world can I open my second HOTMAIL with WIN 8 keep on opening the first HOTMAIL.

    Any similarity to common sense OS is purely coincidental.

    when the email app is open, all your accounts should be in the bottom left corner of the screen. can you switch between your accounts there?

    user doesn't say if they are using a app top open hotmail or using a browser to open hotmail site

    so if you are using a email app what one are you using

    I solved the problem, but it's a strange OS this WIN8 and very frustrating. When I signed out of one account and it would go to my browser site, which had Hotmail on the bar, I would click it and it would automatically go back and open my primary Hotmail.

    I opened another browser, closed the other account, and then clicked Hotmail on the new browser and it presented the normal Hotmail sign in menu.

    This WIN8 8 was designed by a non Windows user (WINXP, Vista).

    i'm completely confused by this thread. are you using hotmail in the browser only? it would seem you have a browser issue rather than OS issue.

    it might be doing that because you have the browser to to remember the password ,or something like that ,when i go to Hotmail in the browser i can sign in ,and then click on my name in the top right corner and sign out ,it changes to a MSDN site ,with a sign in along the top and i can then sign in to any of my 3 accts
