Windows 7: hotmail does not remember accounts

hotmail does not remember accounts

For as long as I can remember if you clicked 'remember me' when you log into it would keep those accounts at the log in screen so you just click one then type the password.

starting this week (i think) it no longer saves more than one account.


Before when i went to it would have three accounts to chose from. My two different ones and and my girlfriends. No it just displays the last one who logged in, and if you click the grew link 'show more saved users' it only has that one, even though each time we logged in we clicked 'remember me'.

I know a friend of mine is also having this issue, is anybody else?

Windows 7, IE8

AFAIK it has been like this for a while, I use 3 Windows Live accounts, and it only ever remembers the last one that logged in

It is a bug or some kind of new security measure?

Although if it was the latter they would take off the 'remember me' and the 'show more saved users' links, so makes you think its a bug or error of some sort.

so damn annoying, only changed in the past week or so for me.
