    [#0005ff]You shouldn't have to - it shold be automatic when certain types of help are called for. Go into Control Panel>Folder Options>File Types and scroll through the list to files of type .chm and check that the OpenWith setting still says Microsoft HTML Help exe or something like it.[/#000ff]
  2. Microsoft no help. This worked for me in XP (not sure about Windows 7) Go to Google, search for UniExtract otherwise known as Universal Extractor ---it was free last time i looked, download, install, set to include context menus. Then right click a .chm file and the context menu choices should appear if installation was successful ---left click on extract to subdirectory, this means that the file will be extracted to a new folder same name as the .chm file. Open folder and your goodie file should be there as an htm, select the initial TOC, table of contents, left click it and it should open in your default browser, use "next" key buttons to scroll thru to your next page, so on and on.
