Word for Windows Context-Sensitive Help


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.1a, 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c


In Microsoft Word for Windows, you can access Help in three ways: by choosing the Help menu, by pressing the F1 key, or by pressing the SHIFT+F1 key combination. F1 and SHIFT+F1 provide context-sensitive help. The differences between these two methods are as follows:

   Method    Result
   ------    ------

   F1         Highlight any menu, menu command, or area on the screen
              and Press F1. Help for that item is brought up. This
              method works even for gray unavailable menu items.

   SHIFT+F1   Press SHIFT+F1. A question mark (?) replaces the mouse
              pointer. Click a specific item for help. This method does
              not work on unavailable menu items.
