Hi all,

I recently upgraded from VS2003 to VS2005. Everything's fine, even the conversion thing went smoothly. Only thing is that I hate the new help feature...

I want to go back to using local help, no web.

It's faster and my F1 works better this way (if I "F1" on a keyword, it is NEVER in the content window and it is time-consuming to go through the search function).

So, either I'm not using it properly or it's just badly implemented but I'd like some advice on how to go back to the way it was in Visual Studio 6.0 and/or Visual Studio 2003.

Thanks, Skip.

You can change quite a bit of the help features under:

Tools -> Options. There's a Help node under Environment.

I'm not infront of a computer that has VS 2005 installed atm, so I can't see exactly which setting it is. But you should be able to find it there.
