I believe you are on Outlook.com, so here goes:

In the top right, there is an icon and the word Outlook next to it. To the right of that is a little down arrow (Between "Outlook", and the big plus next to "New")

If you click that arrow it will drop down a set of pictures, and you can select the "People" icon, and then use the New option to create a new contact.

This thread is a prime example of why posters should give as much information as possible in their original post.

Knowing that the OP was using outlook.com probably would have shortened this thread to two or three posts at most...

Sorry I get everyone confused... I need to create a new e-mail address (e-mail address account) for myself. By going to People icon I can add a new contact (a person, a friend), but not a new e-mail address account for myself.....

You want an entirely new email account for yourself, right? -- i.e. aquamarin@outlook.com. If you go to outlook.com, isn't there a "Sign up Now" link?

This is really an issue with MS constantly renaming things. Outlook has been the name of the desktop email client that comes with Office for nearly 20 years, then they renamed Hotmail to Outlook just to confuse everyone.

I don't use Outlook / Hotmail, but I'm not sure that you can have multiple email accounts under one login. You'll probably have to log out of hotmail, then go back to the main page and create a new account. You'll then have to log into whichever account you wish to use.

Hotmail is Outlook? MS is a den of idiots.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one that's confused...
