I have a new e-mail account and want to know how to get rid of my old Hotmail account? Thanks for your help.
It’s pretty simple Claris. Just log in to your Microsoft Account Overview page by clicking here. Choose Security & password on the left of the page.
Scroll to the bottom and click on Close my account. Then follow the instructions. Keep in mind that this account is also your Microsoft ID, so if you have any other accounts with Microsoft such as an Office 365 subscription, Xbox account etc… you’ll be deleting those accounts as well.
