How can I change back from Outlook.com to Hotmail? I like Hotmail a lot better. Thanks for your help.

To be brief, you can’t.  Microsoft switched all of its web-based mail accounts permanently to Outlook.com. This includes Hotmail, MSN addresses and Live Mail addresses and there’s no turning back.

I’m afraid your options are to give yourself time to get accustomed to the new Outlook.com, use an e-mail client like Outlook to download the messages to your computer or switch to another web-based e-mail provider like Yahoo! or Gmail.
