Chapter 4. Getting Help > Understanding Help

Understanding Help

Beginners and experts alike occasionally need help operating Windows or one of its applications. The Help system in Windows 98 is new, but you will find it very easy to use. It includes access to help files on your local drive, links to resources on the Web, access to Microsoft support engineers, and a Windows Update Manager that keeps your software and drivers current. This chapter also contains a brief description of the WinHelp system used in Windows 95 and earlier Windows applications.

Windows 98 Help uses the new HTML Help engine created by Microsoft. The HTML Help engine displays HTML pages containing help information. With this help engine, Windows 98 can look locally, on your network, or on the Internet for help files or other types of assistance programs. Although HTML Help displays HTML pages, you will not find a large collection of HTML Help files on your system. The HTML Help engine accesses HTML files that have been compressed into one or more files, thereby preserving disk space.
