New email page ,hotmail shortcut.

For those of you who use hotmail this is a link to save to your favourites or bookmark menu. it will open a fresh email page without having to go into windows live account.
I think you need to stay signed into your live account fot it to work.

once saved to favorites you can rename it to suit yourself.

It opens up the compose page. Not really useful to me, as I have WLH pinned to the taskbar.

I think I know what sort of trouble you're having in the process of bookmarking Hotmail, so here's what you can do.

1. Sign in to Live
2. When the Home page loads up, don't go into Hotmail, go in to SkyDrive or Documents first
3. Load the page completely, then go into Hotmail.
4. NOW when you bookmark it, it will open directly in your inbox

The point is that the URL is supposed to end with ?rru=inbox, otherwise it loads the Home page.
