I want to change the Primary Alias for my mail account back to the original Hotmail ID (I had added an Outlook ID and set it as Primary Alias).

How do I do this?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

To be able to change your primary alias, take the following steps:

  1. Go to https://account.live.com which contains your account summary, etc.
  2. On the left menu, click on Overview > Account aliases
  3. There is a list of your associated accounts. Change away :)

You can't, you have to wait 30 days I believe.
