Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.

Add this page to your Favorites/Bookmarks first, so as to get back to me anytime later on, if needed.

Are you looking to change your Hotmail email address itself, or the display name that shows up when you send out emails?

I want to change the display name.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Okay. In your Hotmail page, click on Options at the top-right corner, then click 'More Options'.

Now, click on the 'Account details' link under the 'Managing your account' header. You will be prompted to sign in again - do so. In the page that comes up, you will be able to change your display name (along with other information) accordingly.

Hope it helps.

Regards

Yes by account details I clicked the change button to change the display name.
Then I recieved a message that says I can not change my display name. I't won't let me.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Hmm; I checked that at my end as well - and it does look like the service is temporarily unavailable. Could you try again in a few hours, and report back to me on this page?
