If you are facing any problem while starting up the Mac Outlook, then try to use it in Safe Mode. So in this blog, I am going to discuss How to use Mac Outlook in safe mode.
Safe Mode is a technique to start Mac in such a way that it will prevent some applications that loads automatically when system Start Up & also carry out certain checks to ensure that everything is all right.
It will take more time as compared to the usual to launch the login screen because it will carry out the directory checks to ensure that everything is all right.
If you want to quit safe mode than just restart your system without clicking any key.
In case if have encrypted your Startup disk with FileVault, hold shift key after pressing the power button to start your system in safe mode. You may find the log in prompt twice during the process, first for the startup key and then to log into the Finder. As you see the first login screen just release the shift key.
If you found that it is working fine in safe mode, then restart your system and if your issue is resolved, then the problem is caused by directory or cache which is fixed by start up mode.
If issue still persists after restarting the system, then disable the application that automatically loads into the system when you login.
If your Mac restarts automatically in safe mode, then don't worry, it is has found an issue and trying to fix the issue.
What if Your System Shuts down during safe mode
If your Mac is restarting or shutting down during the safe mode, then contact with Apple Support regarding the issue.
Use System Information to check whether you are in safe mode or not. In the software section you will find the Boot Mode as the safe mode, otherwise you will find the Normal Mode as shown below:
You will also find "Safe Mode" at the upper right corner of your login screen when you are in safe mode.
