#Office – Open #Outlook in safe mode

Hi !

Ok, I’ll write this down because I need this every 2 months. Why? Because every time I change my password in my corporate account, my Outlook app gets crazy and never pass the splash screen.


So, the quick and dirty solution is to open only one time, Outlook in safe mode. And, I always forget on how to do this, so that’s why this post.

Just run the command “outlook.exe /safe” and that’s it!


We got our instance of Outlook in Safe Mode, and my weird account issue is gone next time I open Outlook.

Bonus: You can do the same with Word, PowerPoint or even Excel, and you’ll open the app in safe mode.


So this is my memory back up for next one on September maybe
