To do this, click on the button Log in present in the center of the screen and then type the name of theemail address for which you want to recover the password.

Now, depending on what are the means in your possession and, depending on what is the information that you have previously associated with your Hotmail account, you must choose a method for verifying your identity.
Then indicate whether to receive, at the alternative or secondary email address, an email message with the code needed to reset the password (Send e-mail to email@example.com). You can also receive the verification code via SMS (SMS to *** phone number) or use an authentication app, to verify your identity (Use mine app di authenticazione).
So put the check mark next to the option you prefer (based on information about you in Microsoft's possession some options may not appear), type the initial part of the secondary email address or the final part of your mobile number ( depending on the recovery method you have chosen) and continue by clicking on Submit the code.
Alternatively, you can also click the link I already have a code, if you already have a verification code and therefore do not need to receive a new one.
If, for example, you have chosen to receive the code to verify your identity via e-mail, access it, click on the section Incoming mail or inbox of the same and, in the message received from Microsoft, copy the code that was provided to you. Then enter it in the text field that has been shown to you on the screen and click on the button NEXT

Have you chosen to recover Hotmail passwords by authenticating via the app? In this case, the code to verify your identity will be provided through the app you use, such as Microsoft Authenticator for Android and iOS. Then type the code received in the appropriate field attached to the Outlook website, and click on Forward.
If, on the other hand, you have selected the option I already have a code, type the verification code that is already in your possession, in the appropriate text field, then presses on NEXT. In all the cases mentioned, if you have activated the two-step verification on your account, you will have to provide a second method of verifying your identity, that is, you will have to receive an additional security code, selecting an option different from the previous ones.
