Switch back to the old Hotmail (Hotmail Classic)

In 2007, and then later in summer 2010, Windows Live Hotmail has been updated; the 2010 upgrade focused on functionality, and was not as big a departure from the previous major version as the 2007 Hotmail.com redesign was. So, if you don't like the new Hotmail, is there any way to switch back to the old Hotmail version? This tutorial explores your options in dealing with the new version of Hotmail.

Can you switch back to the old version of Hotmail.com?

The answer, in a nutshell, is "No" - unlike Yahoo, which lets you switch back and forth between new Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Mail Classic, Hotmail does not let you revert to the old version. You are not completely stuck, though, and there are several things you can do to customize the new Hotmail and make it look like the old version:

Other than that, the options available to customize your webmail interface (when you check emails from a web browser) are pretty limited to make the new Hotmail look more like the old one; hopefully, and probably, the ever-increasing number of users (more revenue for Microsoft) should translate into continuous updates that should include the ability to customize the appearance even more.
