Yes, signing up is perhaps the first thing any hotmail user is supposed to know. The truth is that if you do not sign up for an email account, there is no way you can ever use the email box. So, before you go ahead to read other tutorials, you must know how to sign up properly. Though the system will not allow you to sign up if you do not give all the required information, there are some signing up tips that will help you get a better sign up.
Now, hotmail as a platform has many different email types, including live.com, hotmail.com, outlook.com and others. The particular one you choose must be determined by the services you want the email address to give you, so you must consider all these when signing up.
Procedures to sign up a hotmail account
When you want to sign up a hotmail account, the first thing to do is to get all your information together. When you have all information together, including your demographics, you have to choose a password and ID, in case you are not comfortable with the ones that will be suggested by the system.
Just open the outlook homepage and you will be greeted with the outlook logo and name. Below are the two text fields where you are required to enter your email address and password, with the bold blue “sign in” tab below it. After this “sign in” option, look down and you will see where it is written “Don’t have a Microsoft Account? Sign up now.” Just click the link.
When you click the link, it will take you to a page that contains a lot of text fields that looks like a form, demanding a lot of information from you. Start filling in those information. You have to be very correct in what you are filling. This will include your name, gender, date of birth and how you will like to sign in, meaning the ID. It is also here that you will choose the outlook platform you will like to be on. This involves your Microsoft account name and password.
You will also enter your password recovery info including you phone number and email address. After this, you enter your area code and zip codes. When you are through with all these, you enter the captcha below and click “enter.”
This will then take you to another page if you entered correct info and if you email ID has been accepted. This page will give you a bold inscription, “welcome to your new inbox.” But it will be covered with a film, with information on the different things you can do before you proceed to inbox. If you are through with them or that you don’t feel they are necessary, you then click the bold blue button that reads “continue to inbox.”
When you are here, it will then take you to your inbox, and give you the option to “set up your new inbox.”
