Dear Experts

I have windows 7 with outlook 2010 installed.

When I try to open outlook, it goes directly to minimized at the bottom of the task bar and won't open.

Yes I can hold keyboard shift button and right click on the minimized outlook to maximize,,,,Yes I can open outlook in the safe mode

I have read the problem could be with one of the Add-ins which is " " Microsoft VBA for Outlook Addin",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I diabled that and outlook started working properly but after few weeks the problem happened again and I disabled another Add-ins, can't remember what was.

Yesterday happened again and I disabled : Team viewer

Does that means I need to disable all Add-ins to avoid this issue ?

Is it opening onto another LCD monitor that might be turned off?

You mention TeamViewer. If connecting by TeamViewer, it can only see apps on the main LCD monitor.

It's either off screen or not on the "right" screen.

If you only use one monitor, right click on the Task bar and choose cascade or tile.
