Microsoft Office includes a comprehensive help system. In each Office application, such as Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, there’s an easy way to search for help. The simplest way is to press the F1 key, which also works in most other Windows programs. You can also click the blue question mark near the top of the window.
Example: Help in Outlook 2010
Let’s learn how to create an email signature in Outlook.
- With Outlook open, press the F1 key.
- In the search box, type “create signature”.
- Look through the search results. The first result looks promising, so click it.
- Read and follow the instructions.
It’s that easy! Use the same general steps in any Office application. You can also visit office.microsoft.com for even more help, how-to, and training.
Help in older Office applications looks slightly different than Office 2010, but it works the same way.
