    Recently when I open my Hotmail account it opens in one particular email in a Folder and not in the INBOX. Always opens in the same email. Not a big problem to click on INBOX and get new messages but I can't find out why this has started to happen.
    Any ideas as to how I can put this back to how it used to be?
    My O/S is Windows XP.

    try this.
    To skip the Windows Live Hotmail Today page and open it right to your Inbox:
    •Select Options | More options... from the Windows Live Hotmail toolbar.
    •Follow the Windows Live Home settings link under Customize your mail.
    •Make sure Show me my inbox when I sign in is selected under Sign in to Hotmail.
    •Click Save

    Uninstall what? It sounds like the poster is accessing Hotmail from the web.

    I've sorted the problem, I was opening Hotmail from a link in the Tool Bar after opening Internet Explorer.
    If I open Hotmail from the Start Menu it opens directly to the Inbox.
    Thanks for the suggestions anyway. I've deleted the link in the Tool Bar.
