Windows 7: Hotmail - Windows Live - Issues

Hotmail - Windows Live - Issues

I have no idea if there are different versions of Hotmail. I have had Hotmail for 8 years.

I do know that my Hotmail page states Windows Live. Are there different versions of Hotmail? And can one switch from one version to another?

Today (June 29, 2010) a dialog box came up from Microsoft or Hotmail and asked me if I agree to the Terms of Service - or some such wording. I clicked Yes.

And after clicking "Yes" - the whole Hotmail page changed. All emails and folders are there - but a slightly different font.

FOLDERS.

I have all my folders. But I would like to create a new folder. And for the life of me I cannot find out how to create a new folder with this newest and latest version of Hotmail. I have done a search. And every answer states to go to Folders and just 'click' create a new folder. But that option is not apparent on this latest version of Hotmail. When I go to Folders - the only option I have is to 'Show/Hide' folders - no option to 'create' a new folder. When I go to 'New' it only lets me create a new email.

I'm lost is a sea of obtuse technolgy !

Windows Live Mail is great. I use it to access my mail. You just push a button and your mail is downloaded to your computer. If you have more than one account, with that one button all of your mail from all accounts will be downloaded.

I found this while doing a search for 'Folders':

"On May 18, 2010, Microsoft unveiled a new version of Hotmail which offers features such as 1-Click Filters, Active Views, Inbox Sweeping and 10GB attachments. It also includes integration with a 25GB Windows Live SkyDrive and Windows Live Office, a free version of Microsoft's Office Web Apps suite. The new version was released on June 15, 2010 and will roll out to Hotmail's 360 million users over the course of the next six weeks."

When viewing your inbox in Hotmail, scroll down the list of your current folders on the left side of the screen and you should see a link titled "Manage Folders". Click on that, which will bring you to a page where you can add new, rename or delete folders.

Hello Songkrai, what Rich is trying to determine is if you access your mail account thru your browser? Hotmail is web based, all web based mail clients such as hotmail require you to access a web page where you view your mail. Windows Live is an evolution from Microsofts hotmail. So I'm guessing that since you evolved from the hotmail days where you used your browser you are accessing your mail drom the small icon on the upper right of your screen. Correct me if you access your mail account through a different method.
