Windows Live Mail Sign In Tricks
Trick #1 - If You're Signed into One Thing, You're Signed In on Everything
I use Windows Live Mesh in order to sync up my desktop and laptop and one thing I have discovered is that as long as I am signed in on Live Mesh (which runs in the background), I am signed in on everything dealing with Windows Live. For instance, when I go to check Hotmail, I am already signed in; go to the Windows Live Game Marketplace, already signed in. Google uses a similar trick for their services (e.g. sign into Gmail and you will also be signed in with YouTube).
Tip #2 - Install Microsoft My Phone
If you are using a Windows based smart phone, you should install My Phone if it is not already installed. My Phone is a service from Windows that allows you to view, edit and backup your information from your cell phone to that of a Windows Live account. The great thing about this service is if your phone is lost or stolen, you can track it or erase all data and information from it via your Windows account.
Trick #2 - Utilize Office Mobile/Office Web
The online and mobile versions of Office are a great way to get those reports or projects done when not on your desktop computer. Again, with the use of your Windows ID, you can view or edit files that you have saved to your Sky Drive; you can also upload/download files to work on.
As you can see, using the Windows Live sign in can save you time and make life easier in a number of ways.
