Help may refer to any of the following:

1. Help describes assisting another person with a problem. With computers and most products, help is often handled by technical support through a website, like Computer Hope, a company's website, e-mail, or over the phone.

Most companies offer free help for a product under warranty and may charge for support once it's no longer under warranty. Eventually, every product will hit an EOL (end-of-life). When this happens, most companies no longer offer help for a product.

2. Help is an MS-DOS, Windows command line, and Linux command to list an overview of commands and a quick way to find help.

3. Help is an available option or menu in most programs that allow users to search and find answers to questions about the program they're using. Most Microsoft Windows programs can access help using the F1 function key on the keyboard. If this keyboard shortcut doesn't work, or you're using an online version of a program, try Ctrl+F1.
