Steps to Recover Forgot Hotmail Account Password

2.) On the next screen, enter your user id (Email, phone, or Skype) and click on the Next button.
3.) Then click on the Forgot my password option located just below the Sign-in button.
4.) This will open a new page where you will get these three options:
I forgot my password
I know my password, but can’t sign in
I think someone else is using my Microsoft account
Select I think someone else is using my Microsoft account and click on the Next button. Then enter the Captcha as shown on the screen and click on the Next button.
5.) On the next screen, you will get three options to verify your identity:
I don’t have any of these
6.) Select any one appropriate option from the given three and click on the Next button. Selecting any of the first two options, a code will be sent to your email address or phone number which you will have to enter on the subsequent screen and click on the Next button.
NOTE: You will need to enter the last four digits of your phone number if you wish to receive a code on your phone number.
7.) Once you click on the Next button after entering the verification code, you will be directed to the password reset page. Simply enter your new password in the prompted fields and click on the Next button. Your Hotmail account password will be reset.
NOTE: In case you choose the third option – I don’t have any of these, you will be directed to another page where you will need to provide an alternate email address that you have access to. After entering the alternate email address follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.
