Outlook Choose ProfileThis brief guide will show you how to permanently turn off and stop the annoying Choose Profile popup in Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 from popping up on your screen every time you start the Microsoft email application. It will prompt you to choose a Profile Name from a drop down menu, within the Choose Profile window.  The issue about this procedure is that the system will ask you to select a profile every time you start Outlook. Such an issue appears when the user ticks the Set as Default Profile checkbox on the dialog box (to activate such an option you will have to click the “Options >>” button). Every time you will start the Microsoft email client you will have to set this feature all over again!  This is a true bug (even though Microsoft says that this behaviour is by design) which simply doesn’t let you  change the default profile by using the Choose Profile popup. Let’s see how to fix it!

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click Mail.
  3. In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.
  4. Click Always use this profile, and then click the profile that you want to use as the default profile.
  5. Click OK.

    Today is 3/11/2013: This fix does not work for me. Windows 7, Google Sync, Outlook 2010. I adjusted Google Sync to do only one way from Google to Outlook and it didn’t help. Still nagging every time it wants to sync. If I make the sync interval 120 minutes then it happens every 120 minutes.

    This fix did not work for me. “Always use this profile” is always already selected. I have a hunch it has something to do with the Google Calendar Sync I recently installed.

  3. Bob Thomas Says:

    I need to do this on a server for ALL USERS. Can this be done via a reg poke or something else that will affect everyone?

    This fix worked perfectly and has prevented a 2 week annoyance from becoming a real pain in the derrier.
    Thank you! Frank
