When I used to run Windows Vista, I had some commonly used CHM help files as links in my task bar. Now in Windows 7 you can’t put CHM files into the Task bar but I found a better solution: create a Help Toolbar for all of the compiled help files that you use. Here is how you do it:
- Create a folder on your system named “Help”
- In that folder, put shortcuts to all of the help files that you use. You might want to change the names of the shortcuts to make them easier to read.
- Right click on the Windows 7 Task Bar and select Toolbars…New toolbar…
- Navigate to the folder you created it step 1 and press Select Folder.
You now have a Help toolbar in the Task bar for easy access to the Help files that you regularly use:
