Get answers faster
If you find yourself searching for answers on Bing or Google, we can save you time. For some versions of Office we’ve consolidated search results, which is a fancy way of saying that we’ve added Internet search results right in Office Help. Now you’ll see the Help articles that we’ve written right next to content from the Internet.
Once you get to Help, use the search box to find exactly what you’re looking for. It’s better than searching the whole Internet because we’ll only show you help for the version of Office you’re using (in other words, you won’t have to wade through search results for Word 2007 when all you care about is Word 2013).
