How to Delete Your Hotmail Account Permanently

I have finally gotten around to permanently ridding myself of a Microsoft Hotmail account. This blog post will describe how to delete your Hotmail account permanently. I logged into my Hotmail account and looked under the “My Microsoft Account” settings and did not see where to delete my Hotmail account permanently.

You edit your profile by clicking the avatar when logged into your Hotmail account in the upper right hand corner. Then select “My Profile”. Scroll down and then on the left hand side you will see a uniform resource locator hyperlink to “How to close my account“.

You have a 60 day grace period after you choose to delete your Hotmail account permanently. You can log back into your Hotmail account up to 60 days in case you change your mind. However, once the 60 day grace period expires, all of the following will be permanently deleted.

  • Microsoft OneDrive Files
  • Microsoft Xbox Live Data Including Gamer Tag
  • Microsoft Skype Contacts and Identification
  • Nuget.org Account
  • Microsoft Hotmail, Live, Outlook.com, and Microsoft Network Email Accounts

All of the a fore mentioned services will become deleted. You will want to make sure you back up any files, contacts, email messages, calendar items, etc. that you want to keep. Also, you will want to verify and empty these accounts.

  • Microsoft Account Money
  • Skype Account Money
  • Microsoft Store Money

If you have any subscriptions with your Microsoft Hotmail account then you will want to cancel those subscriptions. These subscriptions include:

  • Microsoft Office 365
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • Microsoft Xbox Live Gold
  • Outlook.com Ad Free

You will want to log into your Microsoft services and subscriptions page in order to verify and cancel any remaining active subscriptions. You choose “Payment and billing”. Then you select “Cancel” for each subscription you want to terminate.

You can forward your email during the 60 day grace period. This allows you to access your Microsoft Hotmail account emails while you wait for the account to permanently become deleted. When your Microsoft Hotmail account is permanently deleted then this email forwarding service will cease and desist.

You will want to back up any data associated with your Microsoft Hotmail account. Also, any devices using your Microsoft Hotmail account may no longer function the same, depending on what you use your Microsoft Hotmail account for on that device. Finally, this is the day that you have been waiting for.

The day you can finally remove that ugly Microsoft albatross called a free Hotmail account. You will want to visit this close your account link. You will be asked to log into your Microsoft Hotmail account, if you are not already signed in.

You want to make certain you choose the correct Microsoft account from a list if multiple accounts are displayed. Choose “Next”. Continue on with any prompts. You will be asked to select a reason from the “Select a reason” drop down list.

Now choose “Mark account for closure”. Your dream has finally been achieved. These instructions were written for how to delete your Hotmail account permanently. However, you can use these instructions to close other Microsoft accounts.

05:02
i’m removing my microsoft hotmail
05:04
account finally
05:05
after deck well i don’t know about
05:08
decades plural but anyways
05:10
it’s because i am sick and tired of all
05:12
these accounts that i’ve accumulated
05:14
over the years
05:14
and i’m trying to remove my also remove
05:17
my internet footprint
05:18
and i just don’t want all this these
05:20
accounts i don’t
05:22
know what i’m saying all right i already
05:24
successfully removed my yahoo account
05:26
and it’s gone now for well allegedly i
05:29
don’t believe yahoo either
05:30
but anyways i don’t want to digress
05:32
about that
05:34
it will also remove your microsoft
05:36
hotmail
05:37
your live account your outlook.com
05:39
account
05:40
and your microsoft network email
05:42
accounts they are
05:43
all attached to a microsoft account
05:47
even if it’s for hotmail but if you’re
05:49
just only using
05:50
hotmail for random emails you don’t
05:53
really need to worry about the rest of
05:55
this however
05:57
if you have signed up to any of those
05:59
aforementioned services it will affect
06:01
them and it will remove them
06:03
all right let’s go scroll down all of
06:06
the all of those services
06:07
will be will be deleted let’s say you
06:10
had a hotmail account that you used for
06:11
skype
06:12
and you wanted to permanently delete
06:14
your hotmail account but you forgot that
06:15
you used it for skype
06:17
well after the 60 days it’s gone that
06:19
skype account is gone
06:23
so what you want to do is you want to
06:25
back up any files
06:27
like maybe with onedrive also any
06:29
contacts
06:30
in i think hotmail does have a free
06:33
calendar
06:34
yeah let’s have a free contacts
06:37
area any email messages that are
06:41
important you want to back them up
06:43
you know you can forward them or
06:44
whatever you could print them if you
06:46
wanted to but you know
06:49
why but does anybody use printers
06:52
anymore
06:55
i’ve been without a printer for almost
06:57
two years now well actually about a year
06:58
and a half but whatever
07:00
calendar items also
07:05
and then now you want to verify these
07:07
accounts as well
07:09
your microsoft account money what that
07:11
means is that
07:12
do you have any money still remaining in
07:15
a balance
07:16
attributed to your microsoft hotmail
07:19
microsoft account
07:21
if you delete your microsoft hotmail
07:23
account you’ll lose that money
07:25
might well well of course microsoft
07:28
doesn’t
07:29
fuck about anybody they don’t give a
07:30
rat’s ass except for their
07:32
bottom line the board of directors and
07:34
their you know
07:36
their cocaine habits or you know little
07:39
girl habits or little boy habits or
07:41
whatever
07:41
you know the elite get the elite
07:47
understand your skype account if you
07:50
have any
07:51
skype credits they will disappear
07:54
and you won’t have access to them
07:57
one recommendation
08:01
you know what i’m saying i don’t think i
08:03
could be wrong but i don’t think you can
08:04
get a refund i don’t think you can
08:05
contact
08:06
microsoft and well i got 20 bucks i want
08:09
a
08:11
it refund to my payment source i don’t
08:13
think you can
08:14
you either use it or lose it basically
08:18
and i could now i don’t want to go there
08:20
i don’t want to go there
08:22
all right microsoft store money
08:26
that as well if you’re using your
08:28
microsoft hotmail account for purchases
08:30
on the microsoft store you might have
08:31
a positive balance use it or lose it
08:35
basically
08:38
also subscriptions if you have any
08:40
subscriptions
08:41
attached to your microsoft hotmail
08:43
account
08:44
they will well it could cause reals
08:48
further problems they may be on
08:51
automatic renewal
08:52
and oops you’ve forgotten oh fuck i
08:55
can’t get
08:56
see i’m i’m a real world computer
08:58
technician
08:59
every day not all day i don’t i work
09:01
every day actually i’ve only missed one
09:03
day since
09:04
march of 2018 believe it or not and i
09:07
never get sick
09:08
and i’m not worried about this dumb shit
09:10
virus or this alleged pandemic you know
09:12
what i’m saying
09:19
all you know constant problem this is a
09:22
major
09:24
i would say mistake or a major problem
09:26
that i see
09:27
people don’t take their account
09:29
seriously they forget about them they
09:30
forget what was attached they forget
09:32
what money they spent
09:33
they forget what payment options they
09:36
were using they forgot
09:37
what credit card that they used or they
09:39
forgot to it just goes on and on and on
09:42
i could probably literally make a living
09:44
off of one niche email
09:46
however i would probably be seen under a
09:50
viaduct just drooling because not
09:52
i’m already mentally ill because i’m
09:54
fucking helping you clowns
09:56
with your goddamn information technology
10:00
fiascos and then what do i get i get
10:02
yelled at i get threatened i get cussed
10:04
at
10:05
i get threatened with lawsuits and i’m
10:08
not making any of those up because i’ve
10:10
talked about i’ve i’ve received all of
10:12
that crap
10:13
from you motherfuckers in real life
10:16
by me so you know being in information
10:19
technology
10:23
your subscriptions if you have any
10:25
subscriptions
10:27
you want to verify you want to cancel
10:29
them and also you want to double check
10:31
if there’s automatic renewal
10:33
with them you know what i’m saying those
10:35
subscriptions will then
10:37
they may eventually well if it’s on
10:39
automatic renewal
10:42
it could be 10 years from now and you’re
10:43
wondering well well goddammit i earned
10:46
every goddamn month i received a fifty
10:48
dollar
10:52
post on my credit card from your goddamn
10:54
shitty company aaron
10:56
i’m never doing business with in-net
10:58
computers again god damn it aaron
11:00
see the motherfucker forgot that you
11:02
know he had a hotmail account with an
11:04
automatic renewal subscription
11:06
that renewed every month and as long as
11:08
that credit or debit card was still
11:10
you know functioning and
11:14
all right well i’ve actually obviously
11:16
well not necessarily obviously
11:18
well actually most credit cards and
11:20
debit cards now only what lasts for
11:22
maybe five years at the most
11:23
some of them what two or three years
11:25
anyways anyways i digress
11:28
now these subscriptions could include
11:29
microsoft office 365 microsoft onedrive
11:32
microsoft xbox live gold outlook.com ad
11:35
free
11:36
so i included a link for you that will
11:39
take you to my
11:39
your microsoft services and
11:41
subscriptions page
11:44
on the backend so to speak
11:48
you may want to log into your hotmail
11:50
account beforehand
11:51
or the direct link will take you and it
11:53
will ask you to log in
11:54
and then once you you know
11:57
successfully give the website your
12:01
credentials
12:02
you’ll get access and then what you want
12:05
to do
12:06
on that page is go to any remaining
12:08
active subscriptions
12:09
click on them or go to them and then
12:11
you’re going to choose
12:12
payment and billing then you’re going to
12:15
select cancel
12:16
for each subscription that you want to
12:18
terminate so i think i don’t know i just
12:20
don’t
12:21
i do not know believe it or not i’ve
12:23
never
12:24
used a my my old hotmail account
12:28
for purchases i’ve never i i don’t think
12:31
ever
12:32
nothing for scott i never bought skype
12:34
credits i
12:35
never fucking signed up for office 365.
12:38
oh that that’s another one i think
12:39
that’s on my list i’ll try to remember
12:41
all right
12:42
blah blah blah blah blah blah so i just
12:44
do not know i don’t know if you can
12:45
let’s say you had five different
12:46
subscriptions
12:48
attached to your microsoft hotmail
12:49
account can you just select them all at
12:51
once and cancel them all at once i do
12:53
not know that
12:54
so just you know you just become aware
12:57
of that and just make sure that you you
12:58
might have to
12:59
cancel each one individually all right
13:03
and then you would fall you would that
13:05
you want to terminate all right
13:08
now so now that you’re done with your
13:11
subscriptions you dealt with that
13:12
nightmare you know what i’m saying
13:16
you have the 60-day grace period you can
13:20
forward your emails and i’m not going to
13:22
go into this that’s why you might want
13:24
to
13:24
you know visit my blog post because i
13:27
included a link
13:28
directly to the official microsoft
13:31
how to you know close your hotmail
13:34
account permanently page
13:35
that has some other items that you might
13:38
want to go over i just decide not to
13:40
include it you know what i’m saying
13:41
one was about developer how many fucking
13:43
developers are in my audience oh i’m not
13:45
being condescending at all no i’m just
13:47
saying
13:48
i’m just saying you know what i’m saying
13:52
so it might be productive for you to go
13:54
to that link and go through
13:56
read over everything if if your hotmail
13:58
account is very you know
14:00
important to you and you have a lot of
14:01
subscriptions and blah blah blah
14:03
all right so you have a cis 60 day grace
14:05
period you can
14:06
also for 60 days forward your emails
14:11
to a different email address like gmail
14:14
i mean
14:14
oh that i’m making a future video i
14:16
already made a video showing you how to
14:17
permanently delete your yahoo email
14:19
account
14:20
i’m going to make a video showing you
14:21
how to permanently delete your gmail
14:23
account
14:24
you know what i’m saying so
14:27
now you do not want to log back into
14:29
your hotmail account
14:30
because that will start the clock again
14:33
so
14:34
once you go through this process do not
14:37
log in again with your hotmail account
14:40
clear your cash your cookies whatever
14:42
you have to do
14:44
you can set you can for your emails to a
14:46
different address
14:48
if you wanted to all right
14:52
and then after the 60 day grace period
14:54
those emails will no longer for but at
14:57
least for
14:58
what two months or whatever you would
15:00
get access to your emails and i think
15:02
you can even respond to them
15:04
you know what i’m saying you can receive
15:05
them you can read them you can reply to
15:07
them
15:08
and they’ll you know blah blah they’ll
15:09
bounce back and forth or whatever
15:11
you know what i’m saying what else
15:15
however but when your hotmail account
15:17
finally gets permanently deleted and you
15:19
can no longer
15:19
log in at all and you can’t reverse it
15:23
those emails will no longer be forwarded
15:25
all right
15:28
you will obviously want to back up any
15:31
important data
15:32
contacts calendar items email
15:35
ad addresses and then obvi you know
15:38
email messages so you want to become
15:41
aware of that
15:43
now this also may be important this is
15:45
where i hate
15:47
a lot of these websites now
15:50
i don’t want to digress if you have any
15:53
devices like
15:54
a windows phone or a tablet
15:57
or maybe even a windows computer that
15:59
you use to log
16:00
in i’m giving you a warning right now

16:32
on a on a windows computer you can use
16:35
your microsoft
16:36
account that may have been your hotmail
16:38
account to login
16:40
that is the dumbest fucking shit ever
16:42
that to me is the dumbest idea
16:44
in information technology in the last 20
16:47
years
16:48
it’s similar to the goo you know like on
16:50
a google and i don’t want to digress
16:53
there’s a concept called apple lockout
16:56
there’s a concept called
16:57
google lockout there’s a concept called
17:00
microsoft locked out
17:01
because you fucking used your microsoft
17:03
hotmail account to
17:05
log into your fucking windows 10
17:06
computer well you just fucking went and
17:10
you deleted your hotmail account and
17:12
it’s beyond the 60-day grace period
17:14
well now how the fuck are you gonna log
17:16
into that your windows computer get it
17:18
that to me is all by design
17:20
did you know that you can create a local
17:22
account on microsoft windows 10 i should
17:24
make that video
17:25
i don’t think i ever did but i should so
17:28
be aware that also be aware on a windows
17:30
phone
17:30
and also be aware on a tablet and also
17:32
be aware that your hotmail account
17:34
could be attached to like certain
17:36
applications on
17:38
even an android or on a tablet
17:42
you know or even on windows 10 that if
17:46
once you delete your hotmail account
17:49
those applications and services
17:52
will probably most likely not function
17:54
correctly so just become you might want
17:56
to become aware that
17:58
what else well we’re almost done
18:05
all right
18:09
all right here we go finally finally you
18:11
finally got around to removing that ugly
18:14
ugly halitosis albatross called
18:17
microsoft i mean
18:18
called microsoft free hotmail account
18:22
that just causes all these problems and
18:24
and they seduce you
18:26
and because it’s free well here we go
18:29
here’s the link
18:30
so it’s towards the bottom click on the
18:33
closure account link
18:35
click on that link it will take you to
18:38
where you can close your microsoft
18:40
hotmail account forever
18:43
you know what i’m saying and
18:46
you may want to sign into your hotmail
18:47
account before that if not it will
18:49
prompt you
18:49
all right so now this is where i’m going
18:51
to perform this live but i am going to
18:53
tread carefully
18:54
you know why because i take my internet
18:57
footprint seriously
18:58
and i know there’s a lot of
18:59
motherfucking scumbag bitches and
19:01
assholes on youtube
19:02
that not only do they go and swat other
19:05
youtube information technology content
19:08
creators
19:09
and even that individual i’m not going
19:10
to name it personally
19:12
i don’t really necessarily i’m not a big
19:14
fan of his however that’s
19:16
still disgusting to ever
19:19
swat somebody because why and that’s not
19:24
i mean there’s
19:25
there’s all kinds of phishing going on
19:27
there’s all kinds of circumvention of
19:28
accounts going on
19:29
there’s all kinds of just
19:34
shenanigans going on on youtube youtube
19:37
subscribers are some of the worst
19:40
clients you you don’t want them as
19:41
clients man
19:43
you know they’ll troll you they’ll stock
19:46
you oh they’ll swatch you
19:48
you know swatting all right so
19:52
let me tread carefully here and i’m
19:54
going to transition away from my
19:56
blog post and so let’s see let me make
19:59
sure
20:00
it will now when i don’t think they
20:02
included it in the instructions
20:04
however when i click click on close your
20:07
account which i’m doing right now
20:08
it takes me to this other page
20:12
it if you’re not signed in it’ll prompt
20:14
so i’m going to sign in
20:16
now it’s asking me to verify my identity
20:19
the reason why
20:20
i’m not censoring the reason why i don’t
20:21
want you to see is because i don’t want
20:23
you to know
20:24
my credentials believe it or not you
20:26
want to study
20:28
i you can’t even there is no free speech
20:31
on youtube you can’t even say the h word
20:34
circumvention in in computing there’s a
20:36
concept called
20:37
social engineering social engineering
20:42
and then the h word that
20:46
you can all you need is one piece of
20:48
information from somebody and that could
20:51
be their username
20:52
that could all that could be is their
20:54
hotmail account their address
20:56
john doe hotmail.com or
21:00
government sucks government sucks yes it
21:03
does
21:04
government sucks at yahoo excuse me at
21:07
hotmail.com
21:09
well you know you might possibly know
21:10
one of their user ids that they’re using
21:12
on another website to log in
21:14
that is what is called social
21:16
engineering all right
21:18
so that is why i’m not going to screen
21:20
capture
21:22
everything especially if it has any any
21:24
i i
21:25
identifiable information even an avatar
21:29
well i might i you know if you show
21:31
somebody your avatar well they might
21:34
it might be familiar and they’ll say oh
21:36
oh oh well
21:38
and then they’ll see it on a different
21:40
website anyways all it takes is
21:42
one piece of information believe it or
21:43
not so it’s asking me to verify
21:46
my identity and it’s giving me three
21:49
options
21:50
i can either receive an email at my
21:52
email address
21:54
my recovery email address or it asks
21:58
to a code they’ll send me a code
22:01
or it also says i don’t have any of
22:03
those i’m going to choose email to try
22:05
to to make this quick
22:06
it says we emailed a code to blank which
22:09
was my email address
22:11
please enter the code to sign in all
22:13
right so now
22:14
this is all live on the live stream so
22:16
we’ll see what happens
22:18
you know what i’m saying now i have to
22:19
check my email now they don’t they don’t
22:21
mention this at all i could be wrong but
22:24
no they didn’t mention any this at all
22:27
where in the instructions they didn’t
22:30
say well you gotta
22:31
well why the fuck do i need to verify my
22:33
identity again well
22:34
you know what i think maybe because
22:37
somebody could try to close your
22:39
microsoft hotmail account
22:41
for you because they’re assholes or
22:45
their bitches
22:46
that’s what i’m thinking but they could
22:49
have at least
22:50
warned you or they could have said
22:51
something in their instruction bit you
22:53
know whatever
22:54
all right so quickly let me check my
22:56
email
23:02
there’s a lot of identity theft on the
23:04
internet now there’s all kinds of
23:06
shenanigans going on
23:08
all right i did receive the security
23:10
code so
23:11
they emailed me a security code and it’s
23:14
you know yeah like i’m going to tell you
23:16
my security code
23:19
all right it is
23:23
seven numbers yeah no
23:26
yeah seven numbers so i’m just gonna
23:30
you know enter it in
23:33
and then we’ll see where that takes me
23:35
where where do you want to go today
23:37
aaron
23:38
how about a blue screen aaron get it
23:40
microsoft’s old stupid dumb shit
23:43
marketing
23:44
garbage
23:47
okay so now it does have a checkbox
23:49
saying don’t ask me again on this device
23:52
i’m i’m not sure why that is available
23:56
or accessible and quite frankly i don’t
23:57
really know what that means
23:59
don’t ask me again on this device to
24:02
to verify i i don’t know you know what i
24:05
don’t fucking care because
24:07
in about a few seconds this it’s done
24:12
now there’s a blue verify button i’m
24:14
going to click on that
24:16
and it takes me to this page now i can’t
24:19
screen capture this because number one
24:20
it has my avatar
24:22
number two it has my email address make
24:25
sure that blank which was my email
24:27
address is ready to close
24:28
it gives you a warning before you mark
24:31
this account
24:32
for closure you’ll want to we already
24:34
went over that
24:35
but well i guess we could really quickly
24:37
go over it again to just hammer it home
24:39
cancel any subscriptions all right
24:43
cancel any business or organizational
24:45
services delete any
24:46
azure active directories what else save
24:49
your health records
24:51
well since when has since when as bill
24:55
and melinda gates cared about health
24:58
you may want to study bill and melinda
25:00
gates and did you know that
25:02
bill gates’s father helped
25:06
create planned parenthood all right
25:11
i’m not a leftist either all right use
25:14
your remaining account balances we went
25:16
over that
25:16
user remaining skype credits we went
25:18
over that set up automatic email replies
25:21
you don’t have to do that but you can
25:23
turn off reset protection i don’t know
25:25
what the fuck that is
25:27
oh oh oh this is very important
25:31
you’ll need to turn off reset protection
25:34
for any windows devices that have turned
25:36
it on
25:37
if you don’t turn off reset protection
25:39
your device could become
25:40
unusable after your account is closed
25:42
that to me is also known as microsoft
25:45
locked
25:45
also known as google locked also known
25:47
as apple locked also known as facebook
25:50
locked
25:50
also known as you know pretty soon to be
25:52
your internet service provider
25:55
they’ll lock you out of your isp account
25:57
and you can’t surf the internet you
25:58
can’t make any money
26:01
i mean the this bullshit this
26:05
paranoia about security is just driving
26:07
me insane that’s another reason why
26:09
i am cleaning up my internet footprint
26:11
because
26:13
someday they’ll require two factor
26:15
authentication you won’t be able to use
26:17
any website unless you you know you use
26:19
two factor
26:20
and then who knows in 20 years who knows
26:22
what else technology
26:24
will create you you’ll you’ll it’ll be a
26:26
five step
26:27
you’ll have to type in the username the
26:29
password
26:31
you’ll have to two factor authentication
26:33
code then you’ll have to swipe your
26:35
finger
26:36
biometrics then you’ll have to you know
26:38
answer your
26:39
your secret question then then you’ll
26:41
have to include your zip code then
26:42
you’ll have to include your
26:44
social security number then you’ll have
26:45
to upload your photo id
26:47
then you’ll have to you know you know it
26:49
just goes on and on and on then you’ll
26:51
have to get you know
26:53
the permission from the website owner
26:55
and then finally
26:56
finally you can order some potato chips
26:59
from amazon
27:03
all right okay i’m done with that
27:07
now there was there’s a next button so
27:09

phone desktops microsoft service devices
34:17
and if you log in now you can i don’t
34:19
give out orders
34:20
you can create a local account on a
34:22
microsoft windows 10
34:24
i don’t think it’s product i think
34:26
that’s fucking stupid i’ll be blunt
34:28
that is the fucking dumbest shit idea
34:30
ever
34:31
for you to use in an account
34:35
that you have to log into over the
34:38
internet
34:39
in order to access your local computer
34:42
but that to me is all by design
34:46
your devices using reset protection
34:48
might become unusable
34:50
check i confirm that i understand that
34:53
let’s see my will no longer receive
34:55
social security
34:56
i will no longer receive unemployment i
34:58
will no longer receive any emergency
35:00
funding because of this alleged pandemic
35:02
my driver’s license will be revoked my
35:05
automobile
35:06
vehicles registration will be null and
35:09
void
35:10
i mean really this is like the the
35:13
comcast retention department oh
35:15
the comcast retention department when i
35:17
talked to them they lit
35:19
a woman actually like accused me of
35:21
lying
35:22
she lied to me and then i called her a
35:24
liar
35:25
and she wouldn’t she wouldn’t cancel my
35:27
comcast service
35:29
my internet service she was making up
35:32
she started to yell at me she started to
35:34
argue with me she she accused me of
35:35
lying
35:36
and then when i called her a liar she
35:38
finally hung up and
35:39
i i’m not making this shit you can go
35:42
you can
35:43
search that one search comcast retention
35:46
department corruption all right
35:48
i confirm that i understand after the
35:50
60-day recoverable period i will
35:52
permanently lose access to site services
35:54
and data associated with microsoft
35:56
account
35:56
and that i have received excuse me
35:58
review the effects of closing an account
36:00
now now i think you have to i think this
36:03
is all mandatory
36:04
if there’s a drop down and i include
36:05
those instructions in my in my blog post
36:08
you’ll want to
36:15
you’ll want to choose a reason you
36:18
always have to have a reason in the
36:19
system huh
36:23
oh another warning if you have multiple
36:25
microsoft
36:26
accounts make sure you choose the right
36:28
one because if
36:29
if you got cookies running you may be
36:31
logged into another microsoft account
36:33
and when you go to close your microsoft
36:34
hotmail account
36:35
you accidentally chose your you know
36:38
skype account or outlook account or
36:41
you know let’s see what else office 365
36:44
account
36:46
xbox account social security account i
36:52
mean
36:54
you will be asked to select a reason
36:55
from the selected reason drop down list
36:57
now choose mark account for closure
36:59
you’re
36:59
now yes you’re finally finally i’ve been
37:02
waiting for this
37:03
for multiple years like when did i open
37:06
up my
37:07
fucking goddamn hotmail account for free
37:10
it’s pushing two decades man
37:14
what a fuck if i knew now what i knew
37:16
then i would have
37:17
never opened up a goddamn free hotmail
37:21
account all right well i’m about to
37:24
destroy this albatross forever
37:29
here we go so i have to
37:32
choose from a fucking drop down list
37:43
okay let’s select a reason here’s are
37:46
the reasons they’re given to you i’m
37:48
combining microsoft accounts
37:50
oh yes there could be you may have
37:52
multiple
37:54
microsoft accounts and you just want to
37:56
clean up that clutter
37:58
that might be why now you can’t
38:00
technically
38:01
i don’t know you can’t technically
38:02
combine i don’t know why people are
38:05
thinking
38:05
i see that question quite prevalent can
38:07
i combine my multiple facebook accounts
38:10
can i combine my multiple gmail accounts
38:13
can i combine my multiple yahoo accounts
38:15
can i combine my multiple microsoft
38:18
hotmail account
38:19
it’s like why the fuck would you ever
38:21
why would that ever enter your brain
38:23
no you fucking can’t combine your
38:26
account
38:26
at i’m a computer technician and i do
38:31
maintain my own email services and can
38:33
you imagine the nightmare
38:35
you’d have to write this long code where
38:38
you would enter in one account and
38:40
another account
38:41
and then they you have to merge them and
38:43
then you’d have to sit back and wait for
38:44
all the data
38:45
and you’d have to pray that there’s no
38:47
mistakes well what the fuck
38:49
and why would you want to do it but i
38:51
guess people open up multiple accounts
38:54
and then they want to combine them and
38:55
it’s like
38:59
all right i use different microsoft
39:02
account and don’t need this one
39:04
this account was i’m only using the word
39:07
in context
39:08
hacked but on on youtube you there is no
39:11
free speech man
39:13
i mean you use the h word or you use
39:15
certain words and you’ll get the
39:17
video demonetized or i’m not complaining
39:19
i’m just i’m just 10
39:20
i’m just telling you what happens as a
39:23
youtube content creator
39:24
i’m not really complaining about that
39:26
because i have my own website
39:27
and i actually have my own video
39:29
platform on my own website
39:30
internetcomputers.com
39:32
with 10 videos that the motherfuckers at
39:34
youtube
39:35
censored and removed all right
39:40
i no longer want yes this is my reason
39:43
i no longer want any microsoft account
39:46
and i no longer want
39:47
anything to do with microcrap and then
39:51
another choice is my reason isn’t list
39:53
i’m going to choose that one
39:54
i no longer want any microsoft account
39:57
ever now in closing
40:01
i’m going to click on there’s a button
40:03
mark account for closure
40:05
i’m clicking on that right now and let’s
40:08
see what happens
40:13
oh i still can’t show you my my email
40:16
address shows up and
40:18
hey i’m not it’s not paranoia it’s
40:20
proper computer security
40:22
uh like i said before at the beginning
40:23
of this video alls it takes is
40:25
one piece of data and somebody can
40:28
circumvent one of your accounts
40:29
and believe it or not all it takes is an
40:31
email address and not even the full
40:33
email address
40:34
you just need the username before the at
40:39
symbol
40:40
john doe or government sucks or you know
40:43

41:14
but i have believe it or not i have
41:16
circumvented
41:17
accounts before by social engineering
41:22
and i did it by just obtaining like one
41:24
or two pieces
41:25
of information and then i went out and
41:27
performed
41:28
internet searches and then i was like oh
41:31
well they they’ve got an account on this

42:27
microsoft albatross
42:31
you can reopen this account preventing
42:33
the closure by signing back in with 60
42:35

i won’t be doing that yeah i’m getting
42:39
emails actually
42:42
oh my good news my yahoo account that i
42:46
made the video and i demonstrated it
42:48
live
42:50
and i actually screen captured part of
42:52
it but not all of it
42:54
it’s finally in fruition i finally i
42:58
either received an email or it’s beyond
43:01
the 30 days for yahoo so i can never try
43:03
to sign in again
43:05
you know you could you could test but i
43:08
don’t trust
43:11
uh you wouldn’t that be something a
43:12
hundred days you know
43:15
after 40 days after the 60 days which is
43:18
a hundred days you just test it and all
43:19
of a sudden it looks too long again and
43:21
then you have to wait another 60 days
43:23
for the goddamn microsoft albatross to
43:25
finally
43:26
die
43:32
this account becomes unrecoverable 60
43:34
days after
43:35
you close this account meaning that
43:37
you’ll be unable to reopen it well
43:42
there’s the done button i’m clicking on
43:44
done
43:47
oh i can show you this this is the only
43:50
portion of me demonstrating on a live
43:53
stream
43:55
that i feel comfortable with here it is
43:58
after i clicked on done and i got all
43:59
those warnings and the fucking
44:01
laundry list and the you know oh i can
44:05
oh i can sign in
44:06
no so it take took it took me to the
44:09
sign-in
44:10
prompt so if you follow everything in my
44:12
demonstration video that that’s what
44:14
will happen
44:15
and also i wrote a
44:19
blog post that you can click on in the
44:21
description box below down below
44:23
in my youtube video description that has
44:25
full instructions
44:26
and i provided three different links
44:29
i’ll give you a what i consider a gold
44:31
tip
44:32
go ahead and read microsoft’s official
44:35
how to close
44:36
account that i included in my blog post
44:38
read over if
44:39
if your hotmail account is very
44:41
important to you and it and you got all
44:43
these other services
44:44
because actually there’s some additional
44:46
services like azure
44:48
and like one or two others that i didn’t
44:50
cover that
44:51
you know one was for developers and then
44:54
i don’t remember what the other ones
44:55
just you might want to read through it
44:56
in its entirety because
44:59
you you know this could cause you
45:02
further problems and that’s not my
45:04
reason why i’m making this video i’m a
45:06
real world computer technician
45:08
you know what i’m saying these are
45:11
actually
45:12
the same instructions that i give my own
45:14
customers
45:16
now i don’t submit i don’t give them the
45:18
video link
45:20
and then i don’t fucking have a lengthy
45:22
blog post
45:23
but i i condense it for them
45:27
and even for how to close a
45:30
hotmail account yeah let me think yeah
45:33
let me think have i had any requests for
45:37
that
45:38
i had a request when somebody
45:42
deleted their hotmail account and they
45:44
wanted to know if they could reopen it
45:46
and i told them
45:47
the 60-day period but do i have
45:50
i might have had one or two customers
45:53
that requested how to delete their
45:55
yeah because they they just don’t know
45:57
they wouldn’t know where to look and
45:59
it’s hidden it’s like well
46:00
you got to click here do i click here is
46:02
it under my avatar is it under my
46:04
oh oh it’s in my profile oh well where’s
46:06
it at oh there should be a big fucking
46:08
giant but
46:09
you want my opinion as soon as you log
46:11
into your hotmail account there should
46:12
be a giant button at the top
46:15
delete my account here
46:17
[Laughter]
46:20

49:29
another
49:31
youtube content creator in my niche
49:33
information technology
49:34
look it up you don’t know what swatting
49:37
is
49:38
that individual i’m not a big fan of his

49:45
people
49:47
with their computer problems he helps
49:49
people build computers
49:51
he doesn’t have to do any of that he has
49:54
his own business
49:57
he probably makes 10 times more money
50:01
with his own private business he
50:03
probably only earns pennies on the
50:05
dollar from his youtube videos
50:10
adios all right

iMac Getting Slower and Slower – Solution

Another computer problem on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This one deals with a Macintosh computer. Here is the question quoted verbatim.

My iMac has been getting slower and slower. How can I clean it up so it runs faster again?

This individual was using Macintosh operating system macOS Mojave 10.14.3. The solution was actually quite simple. You can download and install the free version of Ccleaner.

Perform a “Cleaner” session with that software. You can download and install the free version of Ccleaner. Perform a “Cleaner” session with that software.

Ccleaner supports the following Macintosh operating systems:

  • Macintosh operating system 10.6 Snow Leopard
  • Macintosh operating system 10.7 Lion
  • Macintosh operating system 10.8 Mountain Lion
  • Macintosh operating system 10.9 Mavericks
  • Macintosh operating system 10.10 Yosemite
  • Macintosh operating system 10.11 El Capitan
  • Macintosh operating system 10.12 Sierra
  • Macintosh operating system 10.13 High Sierra
  • Macintosh operating system 10.14 Mojave
  • Macintosh operating system 10.15 Catalina

You will most likely be asked for your Macintosh administrator password when installing Ccleaner. To run a cleaner session, you click on the “Cleaner” tab on the left. Then choose “Run Cleaner”.

The first time you run a Cleaner session, it may take quite awhile. You can be patient and allow the cleaner scan to finish. Also, as an added tip, you can run multiple cleaner sessions until Ccleaner no longer finds any objects or keeps finding the same objects that cannot be removed.

For my computer repair customers I used to run 3 cleaner sessions in a row. If your Macintosh is extremely slow and or you are having difficulties installing Ccleaner, you can boot your Macintosh computer into safe mode. In order to boot into safe mode, you either turn on or restart your Macintosh computer.

Then immediately press and keep holding the Shift key on your Macintosh computer until you see the login window. The term “Safe Boot” should appear in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Now log into your Macintosh computer per usual.

You can then try to install Ccleaner and or run a cleaner session. Macintosh computers are not perfect contrary to what the Macintosh fan boys and girls tell you. Just like many operating systems, Macintosh computers accumulate junk files.

Also known as cache, internet cache, temporary internet files, cookies, etc. You may want to periodically run a Ccleaner cleaner scan as part of your routine Macintosh computer maintenance. This solution has helped quite a few individuals solve their iMac getting slower and slower problem.

These instructions were written for an Apple Macintosh iMac with Macintosh operating system macOS Mojave 10.14.3 installed. However, you could certainly use this solution for other Macintosh computer hardware with other Macintosh operating systems newer then 10.6 Snow Leopard.

01:53

01:58
here’s the solution
02:01
c cleaner c cleaner
02:05
i know the youtube technology shill some
02:08
of the youtube technology shills frown
02:10
upon sea cleaner
02:11
i’ve never ever had a problem with it
02:14
ever and i’ve used it
02:15
well over a decade as a matter of fact
02:17
i’m a ccleaner affiliate
02:22
piriform develop ccleaner
02:25
you can purchase it from me but you do
02:27
not have to but i am telling you up
02:29
front that i’m a ccleaner affiliate
02:32
never had a problem with it even on
02:33
macintosh what you want to do is you
02:36
want to download ccleaner
02:38
and you want to run a cleaning scan
02:41
on macintosh that you don’t need to fuck
02:44
around with any of the settings i don’t
02:46
really
02:46
you know i’m not even going to talk
02:48
about that because you know when it
02:50
comes to certain tools
02:52
you know just accept the defaults you
02:55
can click on the link in the description
02:58
box below of this youtube video that
02:59
will take you to my blog post at my
03:01
website anycomputers.com well
03:03
i will have abstract written
03:06
instructions on how you can
03:07
you know solve this problem but
03:10
fundamentally a ccleaner
03:11
i will include the free link
03:15
and also if you want to purchase it i
03:18
receive a small commission from you
03:20
and i’ve used ccleaner for over a decade
03:24
never had a problem i don’t know these
03:26
youtube technology
03:27
shells they’re like outright liars
03:31
and or somebody’s paying them to
03:34
tell you not to use ccleaner or
03:37
you don’t have to use ccleaner you if
03:40
there’s another tool that you’re more
03:41
comfortable with or you’ve used before
03:44
or maybe you have had a bad experience
03:46
with ccleaner
03:47
then by all means don’t fucking use it
03:50
i’m a real world computer technician and
03:53
this is a very common
03:55
problem and i’ve been you know earning
03:58
supplemental income on this third-party
04:00
website
04:00
whereby i answer computer technology
04:02
related questions for over
04:04
10 years now actually they’ve never
04:07
they haven’t fired me yet and i’ve been
04:09
in
04:10
you know one suggestion is to use
04:12
ccleaner and i’ve never
04:14
had any complaints for management or
04:16
anybody
04:18
so what you’re going to do is all you do
04:20
is install ccleaner on your macintosh
04:22
it’s going to be a dmg
04:23
file it’s you know it’s a small download
04:27
and i will provide the links for you and
04:29
then you install it on your macintosh
04:31
you’re going to
04:32
most likely need to know your
04:35
administrator password
04:37
macintosh computers are they actually
04:39
have i think bsd
04:41
which is a fork of unix they
04:44
there’s a command line
04:48
there’s a account that
04:51
that is basically an administrator
04:53
account that allows you to install
04:55
software on macintosh and so and perform
04:57
some other tasks
04:58
most likely when you go to install
05:00
ccleaner most likely you’ll get prompted
05:04
maybe there’s i’m not aware of but then
05:07
i don’t actually use macintosh
05:09
i have used macintosh computers i just
05:11
don’t have one right now i’m working on
05:12
that i have
05:13
excess capital now because
05:17
i mean the term zoom i just made a zoom
05:20
video yesterday that’s an apropos term
05:22
because
05:22
zoom i mean just the traffic on this
05:25
website is through the roof
05:27
zooming it and anyways i don’t
05:30
digress too much
05:33
anything further now the windows version
05:37
oh
05:38
and what operating system i think
05:42
i will try to include that in my blog
05:43
post i have not written it yet
05:45
i do not record my videos for my
05:47
subscribers
05:48
because really if you’ve studied youtube
05:51
youtube metrics and you
05:53
if you’ve studied youtube heavily you’re
05:56
really not
05:57
going to it’s very
06:00
if you’re going to think that you’re
06:01
going to make a full-time living on
06:03
youtube based upon your subscribers you
06:05
might want to rethink that
06:07
the recidivism rate meaning the
06:09
percentage on average 14 percent
06:12
the the youtube i’m pretty much done i
06:15
just gave you the answer
06:16
so i and you know if you’re offended by
06:19
me
06:19
you know digressing i don’t fucking care
06:22
you can leave now or
06:23
you probably already left 14
06:27
is about i think average recidivism rate
06:29
meaning your subscribers will
06:31
view your videos 14 of your subscribers
06:34
will view a youtube video
06:37
that’s the average but that probably
06:39
could have changed or it has changed my
06:42
i don’t even know what my i don’t
06:43
fucking care but you you got youtube
06:45
content creators that have like a
06:47
million subscribers and all you have to
06:49
do is go and look at the viewer account
06:51
on their videos and go back about a
06:52
month and it’s probably less than one
06:54
percent
06:55
so i don’t make videos for my
06:58
subscribers
06:59
i make videos to help people i i’m a
07:02
real world computer technician
07:05
and i work every day and i help solve
07:08
computer problems
07:09
and then i share that information with
07:11
you
07:12
that’s it you don’t have to buy anything
07:15
from me you don’t
07:16
you you know if you may want to get the
07:18
pro
07:19
version because it has an automatic
07:21
updater and blah blah but you certainly
07:23
don’t have to
07:24
and you don’t have to jank around with
07:26
any of the settings
07:27
just go in and i’ll try to provide deep
07:30
more detailed instructions in my blog
07:31
post
07:32
i don’t i’m using linux to record this
07:36
video
07:37
this computer dual boots it has windows
07:40
7.
07:41
now i’m not going to boot into windows 7
07:43
so i can fire up ccleaner
07:44
and then even a lot of times with
07:46
software the graphical user
07:48
user interface might be different on
07:50
operating systems so
07:52
if on on windows if you’re using
07:54
ccleaner somebody will tell you we’ll
07:56
just click here click there and then run
07:58
a cleaning session
07:59
well but they’re using a macintosh
08:01
computer they
08:02
they on their mac they follow the
08:05
instructions and they’re just like
08:07
where well or that well i don’t see that
08:09
button or well you’re
08:10
allowed well goddammit and you’re a liar
08:12
you’re you’re lying to your audience
08:15
you know one of those people so but i
08:18
will try to provide detailed
08:19
instructions i might even be nice
08:22
and philanthropic to a point and provide
08:25
if i don’t write full instructions i
08:28
will provide a link
08:29
with yeah i’m pretty sure there’s a page
08:32
where
08:32
it’ll show you how to use ccleaner on a
08:34
macintosh because the instructions might
08:36
be different because i just told you
08:38
but on windows you can run a registry
08:41
scan
08:42
but on mac you don’t need to worry about
08:44
that this is
08:46
most times a high percentage
08:49
when i get a a client that has has a
08:52
slow macintosh computer this
08:54
is exactly what i tell them and a lot of
08:56
times they never respond back
08:58
once in a while they’ll say well that
08:59
didn’t really work or well it’s still
09:02
slow oh here’s a bonus added tip
09:04
it depends on now macintosh
09:08
they don’t have a registry like windows
09:11
so you don’t need to worry about that i
09:13
don’t want to digress i don’t want to
09:14
make this video too long i’ll try to
09:16
keep it what to 15 minutes
09:18
and i gotta i have about five or six
09:20
minutes maybe a little bit over time but
09:22
i don’t want to make this video too long
09:23
i try to keep my videos i
09:24
honestly to 15 minutes and then but i
09:27
have a big fucking mouth and so
09:29
on macintosh the there is no registry
09:33
however
09:35
just like any computer even linux
09:38
operating systems will accumulate files
09:42
that’s just web especially web browsers
09:45
web browser especially web browsers
09:48
and it really doesn’t matter what
09:49
operating system they have temp files
09:52
they have cache files
09:54
linux my my computer with the that has
09:57
mx linux that i’m looking at right now
09:59
well you know it’s kind of like right
10:00
there but
10:02
it has cache it it caches files
10:07
on windows and mac that can cause a
10:10
problem
10:10
temp files cache files also known as
10:13
cookies and temporary internet
10:15
files and like you’ll download a plugin
10:19
or you’ll you’ll download
10:20
you know software whatever it
10:22
accumulates
10:24
and over time if your computer
10:27
and the operating system
10:30
does not clean those files up they’re
10:33
gonna still be on the hard drive
10:35
and believe it or not that can cause
10:37
problems
10:38
it can especially cause web browsing
10:41
problems your web browser will start to
10:43
fuck up or slow down
10:45
or just get flaky or you can’t log into
10:49
your email anymore or just all
10:51
i could just make a separate video you
10:53
know like a five hour
10:55
video just on that it can also affect
10:58
your overall operating system
11:00
believe it or not and so tools like
11:03
ccleaner
11:04
are very effective they really are even
11:06
on a macintosh
11:08
now here let me give you some other
11:10
additional tips
11:12
the safe mode if your mac
11:16
is really slow like they’re slow
11:19
and then there’s
11:23
really slow and then there’s very slow
11:26
and then there’s extremely slow
11:29
so there could be different you could
11:31
even time it how long does it take your
11:33
macintosh to boot up
11:36
you know five minutes let’s say you can
11:38
get a cup of coffee
11:40
30 minutes you could cheat on your
11:42
spouse with your
11:44
mistress well isn’t that what americans
11:47
do well it wasn’t that that
11:49
what that ashleymadison.com
11:53
you know was about and anyways
11:58
if it’s really slow and it takes too
12:01
a long time to even boot up and get into
12:03
the login window and finally log in
12:06
by by you may want to try this first
12:10
it’s up to you i’m trying to think of
12:12
ways to save you time
12:14
the scan will take a long time even on
12:17
a slow macintosh but a macintosh that
12:20
boots up you know a couple minutes
12:22
logs in and things seem to be okay but
12:24
then all of a sudden
12:26
you’re surfing the internet or you’re
12:28
you know
12:29
opening up a program zoom or adobe or
12:32
whatever you’re doing
12:33
and then oh and then here comes the
12:34
molasses
12:37
the tortoise
12:42
the tortoise versus the hare all of a
12:45
sudden your macintosh
12:46
is becoming a comedian and
12:49
it it’s involved in a race but it’s the
12:53
tortoise it’s not the hair
12:55
no it’s just you know okay let’s see
12:58
one step at a time and well i kind of
13:01
speak
13:02
soft i kind of speak slowly anyways and
13:05
well you know what i kind of got an itch
13:07
here and
13:08
well you know i’m going to take a break
13:11
now and get some sun
13:12
and well you know maybe next week i’ll
13:15
cross the finish line
13:16
and you know well yeah you know i’m a
13:19
tortoise
13:21
i’m a macintosh i mean
13:26
even on macs like that that
13:29
you know relatively seem to respond okay
13:34
it still can take a long time so this is
13:36
my warning
13:39
be patient download ccleaner
13:42
and just let it run you might want to
13:44
just go you know
13:46
jump in your vehicle and get some sun or
13:48
go for a walk or whatever oh fuck the
13:50
government
13:51
fuck what the government says actually
13:54
and i don’t want to digress about that
13:56
oh i might get my youtube channel
13:58
terminated
13:59
for dare talk about that and criticizing
14:02
that
14:03
you know this alleged pandemic i mean
14:05
come on
14:10
just be patient allow it to finish it
14:12
could take a while it also depends on
14:15
how much accumulation on your macintosh
14:19
it it might be months it might be years
14:22
since the last time you cleaned up your
14:23
cash your internet cash your internet
14:25
cookies your cash
14:26
your temp files that could be billions
14:30
i’m not making this shit up well we’re
14:32
really like gigabytes oh yes i’m not
14:33
making that up
14:34
see cleaner i don’t know what my record
14:37
is
14:38
i’m trying to remember i think i lost
14:40
count now
14:41
five gigs i don’t know that i think that
14:42
was on a windows computer whatever
14:44
whatever
14:45
that’s just bragging rights
14:51
it can take a while and then the first
14:52
scan that i’ve noticed that was ccleaner
14:55
the first time i’m at almost a 15 minute
14:57
mark so i gotta
14:58
you know run here the first time it will
15:01
take a while because
15:03
even on windows well windows it has goes
15:05
through the entire registry
15:07
if you run the register scan but even on
15:08
windows and mac it’s got to go through
15:10
the file system for the first
15:12
time so that could be why it takes a
15:14
while
15:15
and then i’ve noticed with ccleaner if
15:16
you run it regularly
15:18
it’s not as slow so just be patient on
15:22
the first scan
15:23
on on mac i usually only
15:26
i’ll give you an added bonus tip i run c
15:30
cleaner even on a mac until it no longer
15:33
finds
15:34
any objects or it may find a few objects
15:37
but they’re the the same ones
15:39
they’re the exact same ones and for a
15:41
reason it can’t remove them
15:43
but then if you update ccleaner it might
15:45
find them and then remove them but
15:48
something like okay so
15:51
this is an added bonus tip will see
15:53
cleaner
15:55
run it until it no longer finds any
15:57
objects
15:59
two or three times i notice it seems to
16:01
work better that way
16:02
and then also if you have a really slow
16:04
macintosh
16:07
boot it into safe mode first and i will
16:10
try to include the instructions i think
16:12
it’s
16:12
what is it you hold down you either
16:15
power off your macintosh and then hold
16:17
down the control key
16:19
while while you hit the power button or
16:23
you do a restart and hold down the
16:25
control key
16:26
or something like that i will haven’t
16:28
i’ll try to remember to put those
16:29
instructions
16:30
there too that’s another tip when in
16:32
doubt our mat
16:33
mcintosh does have a safe mode
16:36
it it will i don’t want to get too into
16:39
too many details basically
16:41
certain features certain drivers will
16:43
not you know
16:45
boot up or be functional it hence the
16:48
term
16:48
safe mode then you know install ccleaner
16:52
and then run a clean scan
16:53
you might have to do that on a really
16:56
slow and i just had a customer
16:58
i i would say one at least once a week
17:00
this is this is my
17:02
solution to a slow macintosh it was
17:05
probably
17:06
what what was their trying to think if
17:08
they’re not always the same
17:10
i think it was the safe mode they ran it
17:14
and it really didn’t help too much or
17:15
you know what another thing
17:17
sometimes happens is that they’ll have
17:20
problems installing it
17:22
but if they boot it into safe mode
17:23
that’s an i don’t want to digress too
17:25
much
17:25
safe mode safe mode safe mode it can be
17:27
very productive on a macintosh it can
17:29
clear up a lot of
17:30
issues actually a lot of weird shit
17:33
anything further about see cleaner now
17:36
that i’m into overtime any other tips
17:38
that i want to give you that
17:40
that i think are important
17:43
i think i gave them all to on a
17:45
macintosh
17:47
safe mode that’s a big prevalent one
17:51
safe mode yep learn how to boot into
17:55
safe mode
17:56
you can either boot into safe mode when
17:59
you immediately power on the mac
18:01
or like a restart and
18:09
patience patience is a virtue
18:26
ah
18:32
good luck good luck you’re gonna need it
18:36
i mean
18:52
let’s see is there anybody in there
18:54
still
18:57
likes oh let’s stop

How to Install Zoom

I have been receiving this question quite a bit recently because of the alleged health pandemic, that I will not mention, on a third party website where by I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. How to install Zoom, you ask? The installation of Zoom video conferencing software, is really not that difficult.

Basically, it is a three step process. You can download and then install the Zoom video conferencing software onto your computer. Then you register for a free Zoom account.

You can download the Zoom application from their website. That link should automatically detect your operating system and supply a download link at the top of that web page. You will want to click on the “Download” link button.

If that link does not work and is grayed out so to speak, then your operating system was not exactly properly detected. You can look for a drop down menu above that download link button with your correct operating system. Now you install the Zoom video conferencing software onto your computer.

Then you will want to sign up for a free Zoom account. Once you have the Zoom video conferencing software installed and created a Zoom account, you can begin hosting meetings. Please follow these instructions to host a meeting with Zoom.

Open your Zoom desktop application. You will be required to log into your Zoom account. Click the download arrow.

Select “Start with video”. Now choose “New Meeting”. You have just started a new meeting.

For now you will be required to register a free Zoom account in order to join and or host your own meetings. Zoom, actually supports Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows, and Linux operating systems. Also, Zoom video conferencing software can be installed on Apple iPhone and iPad.

Google Android smartphones are also supported. Zoom has created two web browser extensions for the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. These browser plugins help facilitate the start or scheduling of meetings from within your web browser.

00:43
about that then the third step is to
00:46
then if you’re gonna be a host if you’re
00:49
gonna host meetings you’re gonna have to
00:50
know how to host meetings right so let’s
00:52
cut to the chase you can click on the
00:57
link in the description box below that
00:59
it’ll take you to my website in a
01:00
computer’s comm or you can read in the
01:03
abstract full instructions on how to
01:05
install zoom so first you want to click
01:09
on this link that I included it’s a
01:12
direct link to zooms website download
01:14
the zoom application it should
01:17
automatically detect your operating
01:20
system if it does not like on my
01:22
computer I’m using a debian derivation
01:27
Linux distribution called MX Linux if
01:30
for whatever reason on your computer the
01:32
exact operating system is not detected
01:34
then you would click on this drop down
01:36
list and then choose the app or posts
01:42
operating system but it should detect
01:47
your operating system I would say on
01:49
Windows and Mac more or likely you know
01:52
that it should correctly detect your
01:55
operating system but there is a
01:56
drop-down just in case then download it
01:59
to your computer on Microsoft Windows it
02:02
will be an executable dot exe or might
02:05
you know might be set up dot exe install
02:07
a tech co whatever it’s gonna be an
02:09
executable double-click it
02:11
follow the prompts install zoom client
02:17
desktop software on Macintosh most
02:20
likely it will be a dmg file download it
02:25
double-click it or right-click open it
02:27
follow the prompts install zoom on your
02:30
Macintosh computer that’s the first step
02:37
now once again
02:40
caveat emptor if you’re just gonna be an
02:43
attendee you’re not wanting to host
02:45
meeting somebody emails you a link to a
02:48
zoom meeting or however they communicate
02:52
over chat over you know snail mail over
02:58
you know what SOS or you know whatever
03:01
however you get the link then you do not
03:06
need to register with a free account if
03:10
you’re going to host meetings and invite
03:13
other attendees then you must have at
03:16
the very least a free account this is
03:19
the second link I included in my blog
03:21
post up in my website
03:22
Enoch appears calm free zoom account
03:25
this will take you directly to the
03:27
signup page now this could change in the
03:29
future for now it wants you to verify I
03:32
think this is for robots I could be
03:34
wrong but this is easily circumvented
03:36
you can basically select whatever you
03:38
want though I don’t know if there’s a
03:39
late age limit maybe there is an age
03:41
limit to I just don’t know but quickly
03:43
as an example we’re just gonna choose
03:45
you know January and then we’ll pick the
03:48
fifth and then I’m very young now and I
03:53
must it must be the veganism I’m saying
03:57
all right then click continue this data
04:00
will not be stored well I don’t know
04:02
that and we know anyways now it’s going
04:05
to act now as a real-world computer
04:08
technician that works everyday I don’t
04:11
work eight hours everyday but I work a
04:13
few hours a day as a real-world computer
04:16
technician dealing with real-world
04:18
computer problems one problem is
04:22
email accounts and access so here’s my
04:27
tip choose an email address that you
04:32
know that you have access to they you
04:34
you may want to choose an email address
04:36
that you’ve used for many years decades
04:38
or whatever then you have access to that
04:40
you get email on a regular basis that
04:43
again that you have access to your gonna
04:49
most likely be sent an email to activate
04:51
your free zoom account I don’t know I
04:54
don’t have a free zoom account I don’t
04:56
plan on to save my internet footprint I
05:00
don’t want that many accounts anymore
05:02
I just do not know but I’m not suing and
05:04
then also that will be your login email
05:07
address that you use to log into your
05:10
free zoom account so that you can host
05:11
meetings then you would just click on
05:14
signup there’s there’s also reCAPTCHA is
05:18
that Google reCAPTCHA it looks like you
05:21
might have to follow the Google
05:24
reCAPTCHA or whatever now that that is
05:27
my I don’t give out orders I’m basically
05:29
on arcus but that is a tip of mind when
05:33
it comes to a lot of websites I know you
05:36
can sign in with third parties which
05:37
I’ll get to but that is my tip is as a
05:40
real world computer technician I’ve
05:42
noticed less problem no no they’re not
05:43
perfect you could always get the h-word
05:46
somebody could circumvent your account
05:48
lock you out you could forget your email
05:52
address the login you could forget your
05:53
password but fundamentally a lot of
05:56
times when you use third parties to sign
05:58
into websites that that’s another
05:59
problem another layer that could cause
06:02
another problem but that is another
06:04
option another option is you could sign
06:05
in with SSO you could sign in with a
06:07
Google account including Gmail and you
06:10
can also sign in with Facebook that’s it
06:13
so once you sign up for free for zoom
06:16
and you activate it or you respond to
06:20
the email and then you’re able to log in
06:22
correctly now you can host so you’ve
06:26
downloaded the software you got the free
06:28
account so that you can host meetings if
06:31
that is what your you know reason for
06:35
you
06:36
zooom the third and final step is then
06:40
to host meetings this is where you can
06:45
click on the link in the description box
06:46
below down in the youtube video
06:48
description box that will take you to my
06:51
blog post at my website in a computer’s
06:53
comm where i included full instructions
06:56
on how to host a meeting for the desktop
06:58
the desktop software i will there might
07:01
be a little bit over time but i dont
07:03
want to digress
07:04
the instructions for using the
07:08
application on iOS or android might be
07:11
different you know and even operating
07:13
system the graphical user interfaces
07:17
might be different on linux mac and wind
07:23
blows excuse me Windows Microsoft
07:25
Windows but the instructions are written
07:28
in one way they don’t mention the
07:30
differences in operating system so I’m
07:31
assuming the graphical user interface is
07:35
similar or the same you know I’m saying
07:38
okay so what you do to host a meeting is
07:40
obviously you’re going to open up the
07:44
zoom and I don’t really need to screen
07:47
capture the website anymore obviously
07:49
you’re gonna want to open up the zoom
07:51
software on the desk either on Microsoft
07:53
Windows operating system Apple Macintosh
07:56
or Linux then once you open it up you’re
07:59
you you’re required to sign in you have
08:02
to sign in order to host meetings at the
08:04
very least with a free account I don’t
08:05
know of any way around that so you know
08:08
I’m saying then what you’re going to do
08:11
is then click there’s a down arrow click
08:17
on the download arrow there’s a download
08:19
arrow click on it and then choose start
08:23
with video now choose new meeting so
08:28
you’re gonna create a new meeting that
08:29
that’s it that’s how you create a new
08:31
meeting that’s it so look for the down
08:34
load arrow click on it then choose start
08:37
with video if you’re if you’re you know
08:40
wanting to I’m assuming you’re wanting
08:41
to create a video meeting and then
08:43
choose new meeting and that’s it and now
08:47
you just started a new meeting I don’t
08:49
know I don’t I haven’t installed
08:51
software I may make an additional Linux
08:54
video showing you how to install zoom on
08:55
Linux I don’t know yet there could be
08:59
other options I think I know on the home
09:02
page that there’s that’s another place
09:04
you can go to the home page and click on
09:06
new meeting and then it’ll print if you
09:10
don’t have the software installed it’ll
09:11
prompt you to install software if it’s
09:13
installing your computer I think it’ll
09:15
it’ll open it up from the their website
09:20
on their home page I think you can
09:22
choose a video only meeting an audio
09:24
only meeting and I think the third
09:26
option but anyways now how about a
09:28
little bit over time let me I try to I’m
09:31
at the nine and a half minute mark I try
09:32
to keep my videos down in fifteen
09:34
minutes but I have a big mouth
09:35
and I can talk all day and a lot of
09:38
times I over you know extend myself but
09:42
so so far I’m under control you know
09:45
alright over time
09:53
zooom also supports the Google Android
09:57
operating system so most Android you’ll
09:59
be able to install the zoom application
10:01
from the Google Play Store Apple iOS is
10:06
supported I’m assuming I don’t know for
10:07
a fact but most likely possibly probably
10:11
you’ll be able to install zoom client
10:14
software on an iPhone and iPad then you
10:20
would need a user of free at the very
10:23
least a free user account so that you
10:26
can host meetings if you just want to
10:28
participate you can skip the second two
10:31
steps all you need is the software
10:33
either on Microsoft Windows Apple
10:36
Macintosh or Linux Google Android Apple
10:41
iPhone Apple iPad and then you can join
10:43
meetings and you and then you can
10:45
participate to host you must have at
10:48
least a free account and then you must
10:51
then you know learn how to host so that
10:57
those are the three steps and I included
11:00
a little bit of over time about they
11:06
support dumb devices I mean smart phones
11:10
then in closing there’s they also have I
11:14
don’t know why they made them but they
11:16
have two extensions browser extensions
11:19
for Google Chrome and also Mozilla
11:23
Firefox basically alls it does is help
11:26
facilitate starting meetings and
11:29
scheduling yeah you can either start a
11:32
new meeting you what you would be in
11:34
Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and
11:36
then you would click on the extension or
11:38
there might be a button at the top I
11:40
don’t know I haven’t installed it yet
11:41
but you could either start a new zoom
11:44
meeting or schedule a meeting from
11:47
within your web browser I don’t know why
11:48
they have that I’m not a big fan of
11:51
extensions but that’s also accessible
11:57
you know you can download the extensions
12:00
anything further about zoom maybe let’s
12:04
see I’m at the 12 minute mark
12:05
anything on top of my head I can think
12:07
of that I didn’t include they had some
12:10
other like programs that you can control
12:14
zoom fron or website I didn’t even do
12:18
you even read up on upon that I didn’t
12:20
go into that I just wanted to make this
12:22
video too because because of the current
12:25
alleged health crisis which I’m very
12:29
skeptical about which I’m not going to
12:31
discuss oh if I did and I criticized
12:33
that probably get censored off a
12:35
you know YouTube
12:36
anyways I see this quite frequently now
12:41
that people are either working from home
12:43
or they’re excused from their
12:46
brainwashing in the public schools I
12:49
mean they’re not in school and so they
12:52
got a lot of spare time and I yeah zoom
12:55
pun intended that’s an app riposte word
12:58
zooms business I think is zooming right
13:01
now because I see it on this three-part
13:03
website where I answer real world
13:06
computer support questions you know what
13:09
I’m saying
13:10
computer and Technology questions and I
13:13
see this quite prevalent people you know
13:15
how do I install zoom well you know blah
13:18
blah how do i schedule meeting you know
13:20
blah blah blah what’s the differences
13:21
between the free and the new account
13:23
level kick how do i you know schedule a
13:26
meeting in advance a bubble I’ll give
13:28
you a few bonus added pieces of
13:31
information that I know but real quickly
13:33
because I don’t want to make this video
13:34
much beyond 15 minutes let’s see on
13:39
their website they’ve got a web page
13:43
describing the differences between the
13:45
free and the premium and the enterprise
13:47
the free account is restricted 40
13:51
minutes and now I think it’s unlimited
13:53
meetings but each meeting can only last
13:56
40 minutes you can only I think invite a
14:00
hundred attendees and that’s only for
14:03
one hosting account you can’t with the
14:06
same zoom account you can’t have
14:09
multiple hosts what are the restrictions
14:12
you can’t schedule in advance I don’t
14:15
think with the free account you know I’m
14:17
saying
14:18
and then on
14:19
website you go to zoom dot us and you
14:22
can actually start meetings from there
14:24
you can as a host what else do I know
14:27
some additional overtime information
14:30
that may be productive I think that’s
14:33
basically about it that should be enough
14:36
do you for you to get started you know
14:39
it’s really easy you know just three
14:42
steps man the that link I gave you is
14:45
very valuable because one of the first
14:48
questions on the survey website that I
14:51
actually dealt with zoom was well one
14:54
was you know how do I log in I’m locked
14:57
out another one which I think that’ll be
14:59
a future video another one the second
15:01
one or whatever another one was at the
15:03
very beginning was how do I install zoom
15:06
they went through and they couldn’t find
15:09
the link or didn’t work
15:11
I found the link that will automatically
15:14
detect your operating system and then it
15:17
will so that will be my gold tip if you
15:20
have any problems downloading installing
15:22
it should automatically detect your
15:24
operating system the link I gave you
15:26
that’s in my blog post link down below
15:29
in the description box if not there’s a
15:32
drop down menu you know and there will
15:35
be a download button the button will not
15:37
work it will kind of be grayed out so to
15:39
speak if it did not automatically detect
15:41
your operating system on Windows and
15:43
Macintosh and Linux there could be a
15:46
drop down I know on Linux throw us a
15:47
drop down menu try to pick the exact
15:50
operating system because it can make a
15:51
big difference you know I’m saying there
15:53
for whatever reason it doesn’t
15:54
automatically detect your operating
15:55
system then there could be a drop-down
15:58
menu and then try it to choose your
16:01
exact operating system and then boom
16:03
download it boom run the installer boom
16:06
if you want to become a host create the
16:09
free account you know I’m saying and
16:13
then learn how to host not that
16:15
difficult quite easy and then if you’re
16:18
just wanting to attend meetings that’s
16:21
all you want to do you don’t want to
16:22
become a host you can skip the last two
16:25
steps just download software install it
16:28
open it up just click click click click
16:31
learn the
16:32
you know and then or click on the
16:36
invitation and bam you should be rolling
16:39
on Zoom and I think their
16:43
business is zooming right about now I
16:45
don’t see as many yeah Skype yeah I
16:50
don’t wanted to digress about
16:52
yeah I hate Skype I’ll be honest I’ve
16:54
never actually you will have it I think
16:56
I might have used soom once on Linux
16:58
did I I think I may actually have but
17:01
not as a host it wasn’t that but yeah on
17:04
this website I would say how many how
17:10
many problems do I see come soon versus
17:15
Skype I would say it’s like 50/50 right
17:18
now I don’t know what the market share
17:19
is adios
