I’ve recently created a Hotmail email address as the Yahoo account which I had used for years was hacked. I’ve started to really like Hotmail and feel it is a shade better than Yahoo which used to take a long time to load on my computer. But I don’t like to be shown ads and news once I log in. How can I get rid of this Windows Live page with the MSN headlines?
You’ve made a wise choice with Hotmail… not that Yahoo or Gmail are bad. It’s actually kind of tough to take a call on which is the best email service in the world. Anyway, Hotmail has improved dramatically in the past year or so. I especially like the little changes they have made to the webmail interface all of which should make it easy for the newbie to quickly get up and running with their email.
By default, the Windows Live home page loads when you sign in at the Hotmail email service. This page has a few ad banners, the MSN headlines section, and occasionally a few tips and tricks on how to use the email account effectively. However, if you don’t fancy this MSN home page and would rather like to load the inbox, simply change the options and settings of the account.
