I just upgraded some workstations from Office 2010 to Office 2013. When the users are logging into Outlook it is very slow at the splash screen?.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Had a similar issue with my upgrades. Here is what fixed it for me.

Close all Office Apps
Run regedit
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common
Create a New Key and name it "Graphics"
Select Graphics, right-click on the right panel and create a New DWORD (32-bit) Value and name it DisableHardwareAcceleration.
Enter Value data as 1

I tried that already. I will try on another computer. Any other ideas?

Also, watch the Outlook startup. Much of the time is loading Add-ins (I see this in Outlook 2010 as well). You can disable any add-ins you do not need.

Agree with John, try to run Outlook in safe mode:
outlook.exe /safe

Open in new window

to see if it will speedup the startup.
