Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Hotmail's home page will always be the page that Hotmail sets for you when you log out. It's the price of their free service.
When I exit Hotmail, I want to go to my homepage, Google not MSN. How can I make this happen? I just don't need to be bombarded with all of NBC's stuff.
In this excerpt from Answercast #83, I look at why Hotmail returns users to the parent homepage and what you can do about it.
The short answer is: you can't.
The issue is that Hotmail doesn't allow you to configure where to go next. It simply goes to its parent site when you exit or when you log off.
If you want to look at it, that's kind of the cost of a free email service. They get to do things like that and not let you change them.
The only advice I can give you is to set your homepage so that the homepage button will take you to your Google page, or wherever it is you want - so that the first thing you do after exiting Hotmail is click on the Home button to get to your homepage.
