Microsoft Outlook 2016 hangs on the splash screen


When starting outlook the splash screen displays “starting”, but Outlook never starts.

  1. Close Outlook
  2. Start the “Run” command
  3. Type: outlook.exe /safe
  4. You may be prompted for your user credentials.  If so, enter them.
  5. Outlook should start fairly quickly.  It may take a minute or two to sync to the server.
  6. Close Outlook
  7. Start Outlook as you normally would.
