This doesn't work in Vista as the Help files are not in .chm format (or at least the way in which how Help functions),

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Compiled_HTML_Help

 

That isn't to say that it still can't be done, you just need to have a program installed that uses .chm files for its help files. Just do a search of your hard drive for .chm files, then just double click on one of them and the above will work.

Interesting. Well I didn't find that jewl there. Honestly I don't remember where I came across it. I just had it

in a folder with many other good things to remember that I have found over the years. I visit five computer

forums everyday.

Well I must have found that info at Bleping Computer since I do go there just about everyday. So I can't

claim the tip as original,which I didn't from the git go. Credit must have to go to poster Bouken Red.
