There is a very easy alternative to this in VS 2010 now Smile | :) Go to the Help menu, select 'Manage Help Settings', ignore any error messages ( I get 'You do not have permission to modify content under the location specified for the help content store'). Anyway, ignore any error messages then in the window that pops up select 'Choose online or local help' then select the option 'I want to use online help' and then click okay and exit the window. And your done! VS will now open up a new tab/instance of your default browser and bring up a useful MSDN page with many search terms to get you right lanuage, version of .net framework, and lots of other things to get you good results, just from highlighting what you want and clicking F1 Smile | :)

Hi,
 
I am Edward Nutting, born March 1996 and I am currently an Electrical and Electronic Engineering undergraduate at the University of Bristol, UK. I've been self-teaching programming since I was eight years old and have dabbled in many different areas from web development (where I had my own advertising startup) to low level operating system stuff (my current project Fling OS).
 
The articles and code on this profile are some of my early work (from when I was aged about 13 to 16) but despite my young age, it has been well received by CodeProject users. My more recent work has been for companies or on projects hosted on GitHub, CodePlex or BitBucket.
 
I keep an eye on many things techy and am open to any and all ideas, so please feel free to contact me if you think I can help! Smile | :)
 
Cheers,
Ed Nutting
