Windows 7: Outlook 2013 always starts minimized.

Outlook 2013 always starts minimized.

I'm not sure what setting I may have changed, don't remember changing any really.
When I click Outlook 2013 in the Start menu it starts, but not full screen like it use to. I have to click on the Outlook icon on the taskbar twice for it to show full screen.

Right-click on the Outlook Shortcut the Start folder. Click on properties. Click on the Shortcut Tab. In the run box, use the drop down menu to choose Maximized. Click OK.

What does the Target field say?
Or is it special as shown here?

Target is: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15\OUTLOOK.EXE"

This is on my Dell laptop, not the computer in my specs.

Maybe this:
Technical Solutions: Outlook Stuck in Task Bar (Opens off the screen/minimized)
The comments say that it worked for Office 2013 too - adjust the path.

Make a System Restore Point before messing with the registry.

Deleting the registry key also had no effect.

Other forum posts have suggested a repair of the Office installation.

A very sensible suggestion.

To do this open Control Panel select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office & right click on it & select Change & another small panel will open & select one of the Repair options.
