How to Remove an Outlook Express Splash Screen

When Microsoft Outlook Express is opened, you have to wait a few moments to read your messages because the splash screen has to show first. If you've become irritated at the splash screen and you just want to get to your inbox, there is a registry fix that you can easily perform to ensure that the splash screen doesn't appear again.
Difficulty: Easy


1 Click on the "Start" icon.
2 Click on "Run" on the Start Menu.
3 Type "Regedit" and click on "OK."
Click on each of the following items:
{Unique Identity}
Outlook Express
5.0 (click on this value to see the entries in the right pane)
5 Right-click an empty space in the right pane, run your mouse pointer over "New" and then click on "DWORD Value."
6 Name the DWORD Value "NoSplash." Click on the new value to open it.
7 Change the "Value data" number to "1" and click on "OK." Exit the Registry Editor and restart Outlook Express. There won't be a splash screen.
