Navigating in Help Center
Find your way around Help Center by using web-like navigation. Help Center's toolbar, or navigation bar, looks and works like Internet Explorer's standard toolbar.
To navigate by clicking links:
- On the Help Center home page, click a link below Pick a Help Topic. Help Center displays a subtopic list.
- Keep clicking links to burrow to the topic you're looking for (
Figure 3.2 To get here from the home page, I clicked Windows Basics > Core Windows Tasks > Customizing Your Desktop. The hierarchy of choices lets me drill down into the help system until I find the relevant help page.
To navigate by using the navigation bar:
On the navigation bar click the following buttons:
Back (or press Alt+left arrow) or
Forward (Alt+right arrow) to move through recently viewed topics.
Home (Alt+H) to return to Help Center's home page.
Index (Alt+N) to search by keyword.
Favorites (Alt+A) to view help pages that you've saved. To save a help page, click Add to Favorites (just above the topic panel). These Favorites aren't the same ones as in Internet Explorer.
History (Alt+Y) to view pages that you've read during this help session.
Support (Alt+U) to launch Remote Assistance, contact a Microsoft support person, or visit Windows newsgroups.
Options (Alt+O) to set your own preferences for the help system ( Figure 3.3 ).
