How to let Outlook (not) always ask for profile name when starting?

Some Outlook users may meet the Choose Profile dialog box as below screenshot shown and be asked to select a profile name every time when starting Outlook. This is very useful when you share Outlook with other users, but inconvenient if you just need to work with the default profile only. This article will guide you to let Outlook always ask for profile name when starting, or never ask for profile name when starting.
