Getting Help with Office 2010

If your question is about one of the programs in the Microsoft Office Professional 2010 software suite, and not about the content of this book, your first recourse is the Help system for the individual program. This system is a combination of tools and files stored on your computer when you installed the software suite or program and, if your computer is connected to the Internet, information available from the Microsoft Office Online Web site. You can find Help information in the following ways:

● To find out about an item on the screen, you can display a ScreenTip. For example, to display a ScreenTip for a button, point to the button without clicking it. The ScreenTip gives the button’s name, the associated keyboard shortcut if there is one, and sometimes a description of what the button does when you click it.

● In the program window, you can click the Help button (a question mark in a blue circle) at the right end of the ribbon to display the program-specific Help window.

● At the right end of the title bars of some dialog boxes is a Help button (also a question mark) that you can click to display the program-specific Help window. Sometimes, topics related to the functions of that dialog box are already identified in the window.

1. At the right end of the ribbon, click the Microsoft Word Help button. The Word Help window opens.

If you are connected to the Internet, clicking any of the buttons below the Microsoft Office banner (Products, Support, Images, and Templates) takes you to a corresponding page of the Office Web site.

2. Below the bulleted list under Browse Word 2010 support, click see all. The window changes to display a list of Help topics.

3. In the list of topics, click Activating Word. Word Help displays a list of topics related to activating Microsoft Office programs.

You can click any topic to display the corresponding information.

4. On the toolbar, click the Show Table of Contents button. The window expands to accommodate two panes. The Table of Contents pane appears on the left. Like the table of contents in a book, it is organized in sections.

If you’re connected to the Internet, Word displays sections, topics, and training available from the Office Online Web site as well as those stored on your computer.

5. In the Table of Contents pane, click a few sections and topics. Then click the Back and Forward buttons to move among the topics you have already viewed. 

6. At the right end of the Table of Contents title bar, click the Close button. 

7. At the top of the Word Help window, click the Type words to search for box, type saving, and then press the Enter key.

The Word Help window displays topics related to the word you typed.

Next and Back buttons appear, making it easier to search for the topic you want.

8. In the results list, click the Recover earlier versions of a file in Office 2010 topic. The selected topic appears in the Word Help window.

9. Below the title at the top of the topic, click Show All. Word displays any information that has been collapsed under a heading and changes the Show All button to Hide All. You can jump to related information by clicking hyperlinks identified by blue text.

Tip: You can click the Print button on the toolbar to print a topic. Only the displayed information is printed.

Click the Close button at the right end of the Word Help window.
