Getting Help from the Office Assistant

Often the easiest way to learn how to accomplish a task is to ask someone who knows. Now, with Office, that knowledgeable friend is always available in the form of the Office Assistant. Tell the Office Assistant what you want to do in the same everyday language you use to ask a colleague or friend, and the Office Assistant walks you through the process step by step. If the personality of the default Office Assistant—Clippit—doesn't appeal to you, choose from a variety of other Office Assistants.

Ask the Office Assistant for Help

Click the Help button on the Standard toolbar, or click the Office Assistant.

Click the Office Assistant if necessary, to display the help balloon.

Type your question about a task you want help with.

Click Search.

Click the topic you want help with, and then read the help information.

After you're done, click the Close button in the task pane.

To refine the search, click the Search list arrow, select a search area, and then click the Start Searching button.

Click the Help menu, and then click Hide the Office Assistant.
