Right click on the task bar, select Properties then select the start menu tab then select Customise, then scroll down the options until you get to Help and check the box.

What help and support are you referring too? Most support packages are freebie on-line, or via the phone. If you have "subscribed to - as in paid for - a support package, post the details here.

Do NOT include any details giving "your logon/password, email address etc. which you may have used, or require to use to access the support package to which you have subscribed (if you have)

General advice...

Never post valid logon/passwords, account details etc., emails and the like in any open forum. Genuine forums don't need them (other than when you register in private and don't show them openly when you have registered; CN follows that model). Publishing/posting them openly renders you very vulnerable to numerous problems, rip-offs and so on.

Do you have SP3 installed? Did you try googling the problem?

"how dun you manage to get that automated google search routine to post here?"

I just enter the search term(s) into LMGTFY, click Search, then copy the URL & paste it in the reply box. I've never had a problem.

It was more the way it animated when I clicked on the url you posted... I've never seen it process that way before...

"START".

There is more than one variety of Help and Support around. Some built-in to an OS or app/utility and "free"; and which, as "expert TexUtah observes", can be found as he details (for the installed OS only in his example). Some Help and Support is non-existent, until you pay for it - as in free version software versus subscribed versions. Many novice computer users often aren't aware that the two levels exist. Some (if they "discover" the Windows H&S) will think that's were all the H&S is for all installed software.

Experience here has taught many of us to seek clarification from many a "poster"; so as to avoid going down the wrong road(s) when seeking to help resolve their CFH.

Being a mere mortal descended from refugee immigrant stock from the planet Zog (which was destroyed by an asteroid about the same time as planet Earth was recovering from a similar slight mishap) does clearly place me at a disadvantage, when compared to those blessed with the super earthly powers of heightened perception and comprehension (as exemplified per TexUtah). Likewise it does tend to make us (Zogian descendants) somewhat cautious when it comes to posting our personal contact information. There is much evidence of auto-bots trawling the www for carelessly (albeit often innocently) posted personal data. Let alone the stuff they can mine from hacking into some of social media sites, bank and credit card accounts... But again those gifted with super earthly powers etc. already know this, unlike the novices and others here who may be less gifted...

Those descended from Zogian stock enjoy a daily dose (ideally a couple at least) of hot choccy, with/without (real) cream, and accompanied by a nice piece of fruit cake or a few biscuits (aka koekjes - which those with super earthly powers will clearly recognise and be able translate).

Clearly time for my first phyxe of the day...
