xx Windows 10 & the Help File
« Thread started on: May 25th, 2016, 12:17pm »

I was able to use the Winhlp32 file to open Just Basic Help on previous versions of Windows, but there doesn't seem to be a version available for Windows 10.

Is there any way to read the help file in Windows 10huh huh

Hi,

For me the biggest block was remembering to unblock the file to see the content. For instance you click on an index item and nothing happens.

Right click to get into Properties Window and check some box to allow access. Windows 10 security rolleyes of course you never know when it did something right!

Rod gave good directions.
"Now if you have used IE or Edge to download the file it will have been blocked by windows for your protection. If you open it it will start but you will see no content. So to unblock it right click on the .chm file and select properties, in the general tab click on unblock."
