Asking the Office Assistant for Help > Asking the Office Assistant a Question

Asking the Office Assistant a Question

If you need help on a particular topic, you type a question into the text box (refer to Figure 4.2). Follow these steps to see Office Assistant in action:

  1. If the Office Assistant is not visible, click the Office Assistant button on the Standard toolbar. If the Assistant is visible but the help bubble is not, click the Office Assistant's title bar.

    Figure 4.2. Office Assistant is at your service.

  2. Type a question into the text box. For instance, you might type How do I print? to get help on printing your work.

  3. Click the Search button or press Enter. Office Assistant displays some topics that might match what you're looking for. For instance, Figure 4.3 shows Office Assistant's answer to the question "How do I print?"

    Figure 4.3. The Office Assistant asks you to narrow down exactly what you are trying to accomplish so it can provide the best help possible.

  4. Click the option that best describes what you're trying to do. For instance, you might choose What to do before you print from Figure 4.3. A Help window appears with instructions for the specified task.

    If none of the options describe what you want, click the See More… arrow to view more options, or type a different question into the text box.
