Why do I have to close and reopen Outlook for macros to work?

Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
When I login to my Windows 10 desktop, I open Outlook. I get no pop-ups. Macros don't work. I close Outlook. I open it again. I get no pop-ups. Macros work.

Any experience with this?

Enterprise Environment
Windows 10
Outlook 2016
 
What is your macro security level? If you have it set to the notification option, you should see the notification and need to allow macros. If you don't allow macros you will need to restart Outlook.
 
Hi Diane.
I login to Windows.
I open Outlook. No macro notification/prompt. Macros do not work.
I close Outlook.
I re-open Outlook. No macro notification/prompt. Macros DO work.

Are you saying that is expected behavior? Or are you saying I *should* be seeing a notification?
