Help: What's Available?

Microsoft Office supplies a Help system that makes it easy for you to look up information on application commands and features as you work in a particular Office application. Because every person is different, the Office Help system can be accessed in several ways. You can

  • Ask a question in the Ask a Question box.

  • Ask the Office Assistant for help.

  • Get help on a particular element you see onscreen with the What's This? tool.

  • Use the Contents, Answer Wizard, and Index tabs in the Help window to get help.

  • Access the Office on the Web feature to view Web pages containing help information (if you are connected to the Internet).
