With Outlook Express 5, I could add a DWORD value of
NoSplash to the registry, and set it equal to 1 to turn off
the splash screen. This doesn't seem to work with OE6.

Anybody know how to turn that thing off?

Thanks!

Sick of the Outlook Express splash screen every time you start? This tip will help you remove it.

Open your registry and create a new value called 'NoSplash' in the key below.

Change the value to equal '1' to disable the splash screen.

Exit the registry and restart Outlook Express.

Keys:

Outlook 4.0 and below
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express]

Outlook 5.0 & 6.0
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{** Identity ID **}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0]

Where {** Identity ID **} is your system identity ID.

Settings

Value Name: NoSplash
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: 1 = no splash screen, 0 = splash screen

Thanks ZeroChaos, I had the right value, but the wrong key.

Works great.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
