Outlook is a widely used email client that allows users to send and receive emails, manage appointments and tasks, and more. However, if you encounter issues with Outlook, such as crashing or freezing, starting it in safe mode can help you diagnose and fix the issue.
Here's how to start Outlook in safe mode:
- Close Outlook completely.
- Press and hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard, and then click the Outlook icon to start it.
- Keep holding the "Ctrl" key until you see a message that says "Outlook is running in safe mode" on the screen.
- Release the "Ctrl" key and use Outlook as usual.
In safe mode, Outlook will disable any add-ins and extensions that may be causing the issue. If the problem goes away in safe mode, you can narrow down the cause of the issue by enabling each add-in one by one until you find the culprit.
Starting Outlook in safe mode is a quick and easy way to troubleshoot issues with the application. If you're experiencing problems with Outlook, give it a try!
