Outlookhotmail...how do I get out of it??? I want my old hotmail back
For those who find Microsoft Outlook to be unnecessary, getting rid of the program can feel like it's harder than it really is. There are three methods that this process will go over. This process also shows how to uninstall Outlook without uninstalling other programs you may have installed with Microsoft Office. Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the control panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. Scroll down the list of programs until you see the listing for Microsoft Office, and click once on it. (It may say "Professional Edition 2003" or whichever version you have installed.) Then click the button "Change." Next you will see a window pop-up for Microsoft Office Setup. Select the dot on "Add or Remove Features." Uncheck the box for Microsoft Outlook and click on "Update." The setup will then begin to process the removal from the system. b> Removing Outlook Through Windows Components Wizard b> Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the Control Panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. When the window pops up, click on the "Add/Remove Windows Components" icon at the right side of the window. The Windows Component Wizard will appear. Scroll down the list of components up to Outlook Express. Uncheck the box next to the icon and click "Next." Click "Finish" once the process has completed. b> How to Remove Hidden Outlook Files b> To perform this process, you must allow Windows to show hidden files and folders. To do this, open any folder and click on the "Tools" button. Under the View tab in Folder Options, scroll down the Advanced list until you see "Hidden Files and Folders." Place the dot on "Show Hidden Files and Folders." (If you want to undo this later, follow this same step and place the dot back on "Do not show hidden files and folders.")= Once you can see the hidden files, open another folder and type "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft" into the Address bar, and press "Enter." This will open the folder where the hidden Outlook files are located.(%username% is the name of the administrator or user on your computer. For example, if your name is John Doe, you would type "C:\Documents and Settings\John Doe\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft.") Click on the Outlook folder and delete it. Check the Office folder as well because there might be Outlook files in there as well. If there are any, delete them.
Disconnect Hotmail From Outlook b> Many people use Microsoft Outlook to manage their email accounts. Even email accounts that have Web interfaces, such as Microsoft's Hotmail, are able to utilize Outlook's more robust feature set. When you stop using an account, however, you might want to remove it from your Outlook accounts. You can remove your old Hotmail account from Outlook's "Account Information" menu. Click the "File" tab and click "Account Settings" on the "Account Information" menu. Click to select your Hotmail account from the list and click "Remove." Click "Yes" to confirm that you want to remove the account. Hope this helps.
