Microsoft is again giving out @live.com email address. All you have to do is, follow the given steps below and you’ll be able to get your favorite usernames. Otherwise, all will be taken.

1. Open Hotmail, and press the Sign Up button.

2. After he sign up page appears, don’t start filling the form. Look at the address bar, and you will see URL of the page something like this: https://signup.live.com/hmnewuser.aspx?mkt=en -in&revipc=IN&ts=3968764&sh=7aDN&hm=1&ru=http%3a%2f %2fmail.live.com%2f%3fnewuser%3dyes&rx=http%3a%2f%2fget.live.com% 2fmail%2foverview&rollrs=04&lic=1

3. Now replace hmnewuser.aspx with newuser.aspx and remove &hm=1 from the address.

4. Press Enter.

The sign-up form that will appear now will have @live.com address to sign-up for. :)

I hope you have enjoyed reading this.
