To Obtain Help Using Help Links
If your topic of interest is listed in the Help window, you can tap or click the link to begin browsing the
Help categories instead of entering search text. Why? You browse Help just as you would browse a website. If you know

Obtaining Help while Working
in an office App
Help in the office apps, such as Excel, provides you with the ability
to obtain help directly, without opening the Help window and initiating a
search. For example, you may be unsure about how a particular command
works, or you may be presented with a dialog box that you are not sure
how to use.
Figure 96 shows one option for obtaining help while working in
an office app. If you want to learn more about a command, point to its
button and wait for the ScreenTip to appear. If the Help icon appears in
the ScreenTip, press the 1 key while pointing to the button to open the
Help window associated with that command.
