Typical Help Menu

The Help menu enables users to open an application's online help system. In addition, the Help menu provides access to the About box, which displays information about the copyright, license, and version of the application. (For more information about the Help menu, see Chapter 9 of Java Look and Feel Design Guidelines, 2d ed.)
