Word assumes, by default, that you want online help when you have a problem with your document. Although the online Help resource is way broader in scope than compared to the local Help, that can very well turn out to be a hindrance when you are not online or if you have a slow Internet connection.
So luckily you can force Word to display the offline basic Help files that are store in your computer using a simple switch.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Click F1 to display the Help screen.
- Click the drop-down arrow next to Word Help.
- Select Word Help from computer.
Note that you can always pin the Help screen to the top of your document and continue working while looking at the instructions on the Help screen.
It’s always good to have choices, right?
