A temp version of Outlook 2010 was deleted during a restore.

Resolved Question:

A temp version of Outlook 2010 was deleted during a restore. It had 2 profiles and the option to choose which upon opening. I bought Outlook2013(card). However, I no longer have the opportunity to choose a profile. Only one comes up. Apparently I missed a step at set up. Can I re-install from the card and will I be given the opportunity to select "choose profile at startup."

Thank you

Can you please press the windows key + X and choose Control Panel.

Once this opens, in the top right, type in Mail

The Mail icon will appear.

Click on it and the click Show Profiles.

this is the place where you create and remove profiles and set one as default (or tell Outlook to ask you which on to use).

To tell Outlook to ask you which one to use when it opens, at the bottom of that window you see

"When starting Outlook; use this profile"

Put a check in the circle "Prompt for a profile to be used"

Click OK, and now when outlook starts, it will ask you which profile to use.

If you have any difficulties at all, please do not hesitate to let me know so I can assist you further

Thank you

Now, do I go back and open the last .pst for Outlook to recover my files?

Click Open.
Click Import.
In the Import and Export Wizard, click Import from another program or file, and the click Next.

Click Outlook Data File (.pst), and then click Next.

Click Browse, and then choose the file to import.

NOTE Under Options, it is recommended that you click Do not import duplicates unless you want the imported information to replace or duplicate items already in Outlook.Import and Export Wizard with Do not import duplicates selected

Click Next.

If a password XXXXX assigned to the Outlook Data File (.pst), you are prompted to enter the password, and then click OK.

Set the options for importing items. The default settings usually don’t need to be changed.

The top folder — usually Personal Folders, Outlook Data File, or your email address — is selected automatically.
