Getting Help

Type a question in the Type a Question for Help list box. For example, in Excel, type how do I repeat similar items.

When you press Enter, the Search Results task pane opens and displays a list of possible answers from Microsoft.com. Click the link that seems like the best match.

Read the information in the Help window; then click its Close button. If necessary, click additional links in the Search Results task pane until your question is answered.

INTRODUCTION

Microsoft lets you easily get help in Office—even if you don't know exactly what type of help you need. In addition to typing a question in the Type a Question for Help search box found in each application's window, you can also use the Help task pane and other Help resources to get on track.


TIP

Helping Yourself

If none of the search results adequately answers your question, scroll to the bottom of the Search Results task pane and click the Tips for Better Search Results link for tips on conducting more effective searches.


To use the Help task pane to get help, click the down arrow at the top of the Search Results task pane and select Help from the list that appears.

In the Search field, type a term relating to the task you need help with, and then press Enter or click the green arrow. Repeat steps 2 and 3 when the search results appear.

Click the Search Results task pane's Close button, located at the top of the pane, to close it.
