    Word Help function (2002)

    Is there any way to access the old "Contents/Index" function of Help in Word 2002? At least as my copy is currently set up, I am reduced to using only the little question box. Am I missing something?

    If you right-click on the Office Assistant and choose Options, there is an option called "Respond to F1 key". Uncheck that, and then you can press the F1 function key to open Help.

    Thanks. I was imprecise about the problems. First, I couldn't recall how to make the F1 key work right; this was fixed by your suggestion. Second, I didn't know how to make the "Contents" and "Index" pages appear. These I found with the little "Show tabs" icon in the upper part of the Help window. So I'm much happier. The last thing was regarding context-sensitive help, but now I'm not at all sure that Word ever offered this, except in the Visual Basic editor.

    Hi Jim:
    Shift+F1, in dialog boxes, will get you context sensitive help (or clicking on the question mark).

    Hope this helps.
