OutlookParameterGUI is a freeware program for Windows developed by Emiel Wieldraaijer. This application is designed to help people who have difficulty operating Microsoft Outlook. While Outlook is a powerful contact management application, it is not the easiest to use. Conflicts with other programs, including Windows, and occasional bugs can make Microsoft Outlook extremely frustrating to run at times. Figuring out the exact issue can take hours.
OutlookParameterGUI alleviates this frustration. Rather than starting up Microsoft Outlook in a normal fashion, people can use OutlookParameterGUI to open Microsoft Outlook from a command-line prompt. To do this manually, users must first locat the Microsoft Outlook executable and then place a parameter after that executable. There is a search function that helps locate the executable, but it still can be time consuming.
Without OulookParameterGUI, users can simply locate the description of such a parameter and select it. This does not require the computer knowledge the manual method does. OutlookParameterGUI make a complex computer issue simple enough for the average Microsoft Outlook user to resolve. This is especially helpful for individuals who do not know how to go through the manual process and small businesses that do not have the budget for a full-fledged IT department.
