I reckon this article will get the interest of many users. As a matter of fact, it’s really common to lose your important passwords. Unless you write it down somewhere to secure it for future needs, this is something you’ll experience to face eventually. This brief article will show you how to recover any Windows Live Hotmail password that you may have lost or forgotten.

Whenever you lost or forgotten your Microsoft Windows Live password, the very first thing that you need to do is try resetting your password to get a new one. To reset your password, follow the steps below:

  • Go to Reset Password page.
  • Select the I forgot my password radio button.
  • Select the Use my location information and secret answer to verify my identity radio button.
  • Now select Send password reset instructions to me in e-mail option.
  • Done!

If the above method of resetting your password didn’t work for you, you can always contact the Windows Live Hotmail support to recover your password:

  • Go to Account Password Recovery page.
  • Click the Continue button a few times.
  • Enter the email address you used to sign-up for your Windows Live Hotmail account.
  • Reply the questions the system will ask you.
  • At this point the system will create a so called Windows Live Solution forum. It is a private forum where a designated operator will help you. Such forum will stay open for 30 days.
