Part VI: Appendixes > The Office Help System

B. The Office Help System

Microsoft's electronic help screens may not explain all the burning myster- ies of life, or even of Office X, but they're often enough to get you out of a jam. They're also great for showing you different, and often faster, ways of doing something and for revealing Office features you never knew existed.

In Office X, the Help system has been both improved and pared down. For example, if you're a Mac user from way back, you may have already noticed something missing from the Help menu: the Show Balloons command. Because help balloons no longer exist in Mac OS X, they no longer exist in Office X. Tooltips and the Description panels of dialog boxes fill in much of the gap. (Open Preferences and watch what happens at the bottom of the box when you pass the cursor over the various options.) Still, you may find you're spending more time than ever visiting the Help index.
