I have been an avid Hotmail user for over 20 years... I am not sure what this new update included, but it has not been positive... when typing, the text lags all the time... it is incredibly slow to move messages and delete them... when you enter in a smiley face :), it tries to be all fancy and put in an emoji... this has to be the WORST update yet...
I really like Hotmail and I really want to keep using it! But these changes are making me look at other providers...
Can you please leave things alone while they are working?
