Getting Help with Microsoft Office OneNote 2003

If your question is about Microsoft Office OneNote 2003, and not about the content of this Microsoft Press book, your first recourse is OneNote’s Help system. This system is a combination of the help tools and files placed on your computer when you installed OneNote, and if your computer is connected to the Internet, the help files available from Office Online.

To learn about the items that appear on the screen, you can display a ScreenTip. To display a ScreenTip for a toolbar button, for example, point to the button without clicking it. Its ScreenTip appears, telling you its name. In some dialog boxes, you can click the question mark icon to the left of the Close button in the title bar to display a Help window with information related to the dialog box.

When you have a question about using OneNote, you can enter it in the “Type a question for help” box on the right side of the program window’s menu bar. Then press to display a list of Help topics in the Search Results task pane. You then select the topic that most closely relates to your question.

If you want to practice getting help, you can work through this exercise, which demonstrates two ways to get help.
