Click Help and Support. The Windows Help and Support Center window opens.

         Search for help by using the following options:
Search:  Type the keyword or part of a keyword to get a list of topics using that keyword.
Pick a Help Topic: Use it to search for information on a broad topic.
Ask for Assistance:  Use it to get online help.
Pick a Task: Gives you several tool options and takes you to the needed tool when you click on the option.

Programs Help
      In the menu-bar click on Help. A pull-down menu will appear. Click on Help. You will get a Help window for that program
