It has been a few months since the last trick to get a Windows Live email account address and now there is another trick available, this time thanks to wBeta! There are just a few steps to get your email address and this is much easier than the last time. Here they are:
- Right-click on this link and copy it to the clipboard. It won’t do you any good to just click on the link, you need to actually copy it to use later.
- Go to http://get.live.com/getlive/overview in Internet Explorer and click “Sign Up.” I tried doing it in Firefox but couldn’t get it to work.
- Paste what you just copied in step 1 into the address bar and press enter to execute it. The script adds a “Live.com” option to the drop-down menu of domain choices.
- Fill out the rest of the details and you’re all set!
Hopefully Microsoft will release these email addresses to the public soon but they will probably wait until Windows Live Mail is officially released. So you better hurry and get the address(es) that you want before all of the good ones have been taken and they shutdown this trick!
