Looking for free help on using Word?
Check out individual Word MVP websites
In addition to the help you find on this website there are a lot of places you can find free help. Many of the Microsoft Word MVPs have their own websites with useful information you can access for free. You will find links to such websites on the About page.
If you are having difficulty with an article, you can post a question to the forums. See "Ask questions about Microsoft Word – for free!" below.
NOTE: A number of the Word MVPs are consultants who may be able to offer you solutions for a fee. If you are interested in such services, you can contact the MVP in question. You will find links to MVP websites on the About page. Given the authors of the articles on this website tend to be amongst the top experts in the world in their field, you should be aware that their professional fees are generally at the top end of the scale. To avoid disappointment: few would be able to accept a job worth less than $500.
Access help directly from Word
In Word, press F1. It's the Help Key. To get help, type in your question, or a couple of words that describes what kind of help you're looking for. For example, try "table of contents" or "insert picture" or "page numbers".
If you have Word 2016, you can type your question directly in the Tell me field to the right of the tabs in the Ribbon.
