Someone else will have to give you specific instructions for Windows XL,
but in general terms you read the Help document with your internet
browser - you just set it to look at a file instead of at a website.
With Firefox, for instance, click on File , then Open File, then follow
it to where you've installed Help.
For Internet Explorer the procedure will be very similar. In XL you can
probably drag the Help files onto the desktop for it to leave an icon
on the desktop as a shortcut.
I expect someone will correct these steps for you.
