Lesson 5: The Help System
How to enter the Help Command
Getting into the Help Command involves two basic steps:
Click on Start button
Select Help from Start Menu
The Contents Tab will reveal the table of
contents. Unlike a typical book the user can reveal more subsections or display only
the main topics. This tab is helpful when you are searching for a commonly used Help
functions to understand the bigger picture.
The Index Tab allows you to view all the topics in
alphabetical order, just like the index of a textbook. Instead of page numbers, the user
simply clicks on a word to view information about that topic.
The Search Tab commands the computer to look for a specific
word or set of words within the help database. This method tends to yield more matches,
however, the excessive quantity of information can be overwhelming.
