Secrets of the Office Masters: Creating Shortcuts to Help Files

You can open Help files directly, without going through the Office Assistant or the F1 key—or without even having the particular program open, for that matter. For those who want direct access to their Office help files, nothing beats the speed and simplicity of placing an icon that brings up Help on the Windows QuickLaunch Toolbar. (The QuickLaunch Toolbar is available in Windows 95 or NT 4, with Internet Explorer or later, Windows 98, or Windows 2000.)

To instantly access any individual Office Help file, search for its Compiled HTML Help file (look for the extension .chm) and create a shortcut that specifies that filename. The primary Help files for Word and Excel, for example, are Wdmain9.chm and Xlmain9.chm.
