hotmail sign in drop down list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I used to enjoy the feature of having a dropdown menu listing my email addresses when signing into Hotmail. I have purchased a new laptop running Windows 10 and the list does not appear. Does anybody know what settings to change to activate the feature?

  • Hi kitaron,

    It seems to be related to Brower settings, which browser is you are using to open Hotmail? Edge or Internet explorer 11?

    Based on my understanding, drop down list seems to be based on restored information in the Brower.

    For Edge, Press Ctrl + Shift + Del to open the Clear Recent History mini window and uncheck all boxes to have a try.

    For Internet Explorer 11, please click “Internet Options” and uncheck “Delete Browsing history on exit” under General tab.

    Then, we need enable autofill feature in your web browser.

    Remember passwords and fill out web forms


    In addition, for Hotmail, we have a specific forum, we could also contact them for help. They may have more resource to help you.


    Best regards
