Lesson 4. Getting Help > Reading a Help Topic

Reading a Help Topic

No matter which of the avenues you choose for finding a help topic (the Office Assistant, Contents, Answer Wizard, or Index), you eventually end up at an article you can read, like the one in the right pane of Figure 4.6. From here, you can read the information onscreen or do any of the following:

  • Click a colored word to see a definition of it. For example, in Figure 4.6, the colored words are intranet, Internet, and FTP.

  • Click a >> button to jump to another Help screen. For example, in Figure 4.6, there is a >> button at the end of the first paragraph.

  • Click an underlined word or phrase to jump to another Help screen. This works the same as a >> button; it is simply an alternative that some Help topics use.

  • Click a Show Me link to make the Help system perform the step for you.

  • Print a hard copy of the information by clicking the Print button on the Help window's toolbar (the button that looks like a printer).

  • Copy the text to the Clipboard (for pasting into a program such as Microsoft Word or Windows Notepad) by clicking the Options button (the rightmost button) and then selecting Copy.

  • Return to the previous Help topic you viewed by clicking the Back button (the left-pointing arrow button). If you have not looked at other Help topics this session, the Back button is not available.

  • Close the Help window by clicking the Close (X) button.
