I downloaded and then installed the help pack. But I am unable to use it as there is no icon or shortcut anywhere. Could anyone help?

After you installed it, you can use it via <F1> or Help|LibreOffice Help - without having the help pack installed, it would open your browser instead (and thus you only would have access to help content when you have internet access).
Also the extended tooltips that can be activated via <shift>+<F1> come from help-content, so you only get extended tooltips when you have help installed locally.

The help pack installed must agree with the Language of user interface [Tools>Options window LanguageSettings>Languages>Language of User Interface (Note: If LUI is English(UK) then help installed must be ..helppack_en-GB...)] otherwise you get (Application not found) error when you try opening Help (by pressing F1 for e.g.).
I accidentally solved this problem when fixing another problem! It now works, at least for me! :)
This will undo all of one's settings.
These steps are for Windows XP SP3.
Now the Help Pack is displaying the helps like it should!
Also, now opening a template to create a new document works just fine.
Also, now the Recent Documents list works just fine.
(That means renaming the user's LibreOffice directory fixed all three bugs I had hit in the past 12 hours!)
However, the words I added to my dictionary are gone, and the toolbars are now reverted back to the standard ones. Fortunately, I had made very few changes in toolbars and the words are easy to add back as I use them.
