Making the Help Window Easier to Read
3. Choose an option, such as Smaller or Largest.
The Help window text changes in size.
Keeping the Help window
visible at all times
When you open the Help window, Office 2010 keeps that window displayed
on the screen while letting you use the Office 2010 program underneath. That
way, you can read and follow the instructions in the Help window while using
your program at the same time.
If you turn the Keep on Top feature off, the Help window will appear; but the
moment you click in your Office 2010 program underneath, the Help window
disappears from sight.
To turn the Keep on Top feature on (or off), click the Keep on Top (or Not on
Top) icon in the Help window (refer to Figure 4-4).
Printing the text in the Help window
Sometimes you may find the step-by-step instructions in the Help window
so useful that you may want to reference them again. Rather than open the
Help window each time, you can print the step-by-step instructions so you’ll
always have them at your fingertips when you need them.
To print the text displayed in the Help window, follow these steps:
1. Click the Help icon or press F1 to open the Help window.
2. Make sure that your printer is connected to your computer and turned on.
3. Click the Print icon (refer to Figure 4-4).
The Print dialog box appears.
4. Choose any options in the Print dialog box (such as choosing a printer to
use), and then click OK to print the current contents of the Help window.
Viewing the Table of Contents
One problem with searching through the Help window is that you can easily
lose track of which subcategory or category led you to view the current
contents of the Help window. To avoid this confusion, you can expand the Help
window to display two panes. The left pane displays a table of contents while
the right pane displays additional information, as shown in Figure 4-5.
