Windows Help is an application for getting help for Windows.

In MS-DOS[edit | edit source]

Help first started with a basic command on MS-DOS that shows the commands list and how to use them with parameters.

In Windows[edit | edit source]

In Windows, the Help application is present, called Windows Help in Windows 3.0 to Windows 2000, which gets reincarnated to Help and Support Center in Windows ME. Both help applications include tutorials to help the user get started with using the computer.

Where to find it?[edit | edit source]

In Windows 3.0 and Windows 3.1, it is located in the Help menu of Program Manager.

In Windows 95 to Windows 7, it is located in the start menu.

In Windows 8 and 8.1, the user can find it by using Search by typing Help and Support or by navigating to the all apps section of the start screen and clicking on "Windows Help & Support".

In Windows 10, open up an explorer window and click on the question mark symbol.

The user can press F1 in most cases, but sometimes it takes the user to the application's help itself.

Index[edit | edit source]

All versions of Windows Help since Windows 3.0 have a search index in which the user can use to find a topic they are looking for.
