Unfortunately that option does not appear in Chrome or IE9
It appears it depends on what page you're on in Outlook to get the option to change back to Hotmail (live.com), but I did find it under the gear in Chrome.

Right now I prefer Hotmail over Outlook but mainly use Thunderbird to access it, as well as Gmail.

After dealing with this debacle with 3 days of wrangling,it just started working again last night. After getting a "sorry,there seems to be a problem with Hotmail" page,getting switched over to Outlook (see the frantic post above) I could get on Hotmail with my sons android phone with no settings menu available,I was out of options.Went to work last night,came home and logged on and lo and behold,the Outlook inbox appears with an option to switch to Hotmail and all is well. Funny how these things can bring you to your wits end. Totally my fault for leaving so many important documents (for an upcoming European vacation) in one place.Never again.

email program
HATE Windows Live. Simply hate it. I liked Vista's Windows Mail because you could edit forward emails and get rid of all the junk on the left side. What's another option for Email?
