Methods to fix outlook not responding

If Outlook stops responding at a screen and says "Processing," close it, start it in safe mode, then close it and then open again to fix the problem.

  1. Close Outlook.
  2.  Launch Outlook in safe mode by choosing one of the following options.
o   For Windows 10: select Start, type “Outlook.exe /safe”, and press Enter.
o   For Windows 7: select Start, and in the Search programs and files box, type “Outlook /safe”, and then press Enter.
o   For Windows 8: on the Apps menu, select Run, type “Outlook /safe”, and then select OK.
3.  Close Outlook and then open Outlook again to check that it is showing error or not.
If Outlook didn't resolve your issue, continue to the steps below:
Step 1: Is there a dialog box open?
After asking confirmation by Outlook, if you did not choose any option on that dialog box, Outlook won’t let you do anything else. Press “Alt+Tab “ to check any open dialogue box which will help you see what dialog boxes might be stopping Outlook from responding.
Step 2: Make sure Outlook isn't working on a large or long process
If you are trying to delete or move a large number of messages at once, Outlook can hang. Give Outlook a few minutes to finish all operations and it should start to work again.
If Outlook isn't working on a large or long process, move on to the next step.
Step 3: Install the latest Windows and Office updates
·         Open Outlook 2016.
·         Choose File in the top left corner, then choose Office Account.
·         Under Product Information, choose Update Options.
·         Choose Enable updates if the option is available and then choose Update Options again. If Enable Updates isn't available, automatic updates are enabled and you can go to the next step.
·         Choose Update Now to manually check for and install Office updates.
If installing the latest updates didn't resolve your issue, move on to the next step.
Step 4: Repair your Office programs
·         Quit any running Office programs.
·         In Control Panel, choose Programs and Features.
·         In the list of installed programs, right-click Microsoft Office 2016, then choose Change.
If repairing your Office programs didn't resolve your issue, move on to the next step.
Step 5: Create a new user profile and add your email accounts to the new profile
·         Launch outlook.
·         Choose Add, and in the Profile Name box, type a profile name, and then choose OK.
·         Enter an email address and a password for the primary email account you use in Outlook and then walk through the steps to create the profile.
·         Once the profile is created, on the Show Profiles dialog, choose Prompt for a profile to be used.
·         Start Outlook and choose your new profile.
If creating a new profile solves your issue, you can return to the Show Profiles dialog and delete your old profile.
