1- Not sure but I know that feature has been removed
2- To fix this you can try to uninstall windows live mail so then it will give you a link to hotmail
3- To create a new desktop shortcut see this website and do follow the steps and use windows live messenger instead of the program they are using. here.
4- See this this
Hope this helps
Hi Windows Live updated itself to version 2011 and some things changed that I need help with:
*It no longer seems to have an option to remember my username but not my password. Is there any way to do this?
*Clicking on Inbox no longer takes me into Hotmail but opens Windows Live Mail. I want it to go back to Hotmail if possible.
*My desktop shortcut disappeared. Where do I find the file (its default location) so that I can create a new shortcut for it?
*My Hotmail account reset information email address is no longer mine. I marked it as lost last month but it has not disappeared from my account. Is there any way to remove it?
Thanks and I appreciate your help.
