I installed Libre Office 3.5.5, running windows7. I cannot access built-in help by either pressing F1 or selecting Help on the taskbar. The help button only directs me to the Libre office webpage. Is help available?

This is because the built-in help is not included in the main download. You have to download it apart. Here's a page you can download it :


Once downloaded, just install it as a usual program. You're done.

Thanks, Did it and setting the language same as download drove the nail home. Did'nt know there are so many versions of English.
