Help may refer to any of the following:

1. Help is a term used to describe the process of 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 while it's under warranty and may charge for support once a product is 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 software programs that allow users to search and find answers to questions they may have about that program. Most Microsoft Windows programs can access help using the F1 function key on the keyboard.
