Is there a way to get Outlook to only ask to choose profile as a once-off every now and then?

Currently I would go into Control Panel and change the setting to ask at boot and then turn it off when I'm not going to require that feature (usually 2-3 days at end of month).

Can I do this as a once-off every now and then either with a Desktop shortcut to select a particular profile or hold down a key (eg - CTRL) when opening Outlook to prompt it to ask me only that boot time?

More Info: This is the window that I am referring to, in Control Panel under the Mail (32-bit) snap-in

I want to be able to trigger Outlook to ask me which profile to use, without having to go into the Control Panel and change the radio button to Prompt for a profile to be used. I want it to prompt me using a shortcut or by holding a button whilst launching Outlook. Normally, it always loads just my Outlook profile. (26 days of each month I only use the Outlook profile).

Why not just create three separate shortcuts for starting Outlook? Use the /profile command line argument, like this:

outlook /profile profilename
