While the default theme in Hotmail is nice, you can change the theme to suite you in a few simple steps. Get rid of the boring corporate and make it look all your own. When you personalize Hotmail and Outlook mail it makes a more pleasant experience. You can change themes to match your favorite colors or designs with the click of a button. Even if you are new to Hotmail this process only takes a few seconds and you can try out many different versions. If you get tired of your personalized theme you can always revert back to the default. Lets face it, everyone love to customize. We do it all the time. You might as well make your email inbox custom looking too.
To get started, first you need to sign in to Hotmail. Once you have signed in, look to the top right hand corner of your screen. You will notice a small gear looking icon.
Now you will find all of the Hotmail and Outlook mail settings. The setting we are looking for is labeled ‘Change theme’.
After you click the change theme link, a new panel will appear in the right hand side of the screen. This panel will consists of many different colors and designs. Hotmail has quite a few custom themes to check out. Try them out by clicking on different ones that suite your email preferences.
Once you find one you want to keep, click on the ‘OK’ button at the top. If you decide to keep the default theme, simply select ‘Cancel’ and Hotmail will revert to previous settings. When you are done, the theme panel will disappear. If you decide to change your Hotmail theme later on you can follow the same steps. Now you should have a custom looking Hotmail inbox!
