Next, you’ll use Help to get information about printing files in Word.
If you don’t know how to perform a task or want more information about a feature, you
can turn to Office itself for information on how to use it. This information, referred to
simply as Help , is like a huge encyclopedia available from your desktop. You can get
Help in ScreenTips, from the Help window, and in Microsoft Office Online.
ScreenTips are a fast and simple method you can use to get help about objects you see
on the screen. A ScreenTip is a box with the button’s name, its keyboard shortcut if it has
one, a description of the command’s function, and, in some cases, a link to more
information. Just position the mouse pointer over a button or object to view its ScreenTip.
If a link to more information appears in the ScreenTip, press the F1 key while the Screen-
Tip is displayed to open the Help window with the appropriate topic displayed.
To view ScreenTips:
1. Point to the Microsoft Office Word Help button . The ScreenTip shows the but-
ton’s name, its keyboard shortcut, and a brief explanation of the button. See

Using the Help Window
For more detailed information, you can use the Help window to access all the Help top-

that provides access to the latest information and additional Help resources. For example,
you can access current Help topics, templates of predesigned files, and training for
Office. To connect to Microsoft Office Online, you need Internet access on your
computer. Otherwise, you see only those topics stored locally.
