Microsoft HTML Help contains tools for viewing help files and related help components, as well as for authoring help files from Microsoft Corporation.

HTML Help Workshop uses the main components of the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser to display the contents of the help. It supports HTML, ActiveX, Java, scripting languages (JScript, and Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition), HTML image formats (.jpeg, .gif, and .png files).

HTML Help contains the following components:

HTML Help Workshop is an author's help file development tool with an easy-to-use and intuitive graphical interface that can be used to create projects, hypertext partitions, content files, title files, and other items you may need for later use in the help system.

HTML Help ActiveX control is a small, modular program that is used to insert help navigation into a hypertext file and to add pop-up functions.

HTML Help Viewer is a full-featured and customizable three-panel application in which it is possible to look through help files.

Microsoft HTML Help Image Editor is a graphical tool for creating screenshots and converting, editing and viewing image files.

HTML Help Java Applet is a small Java-based program that can be used instead of ActiveX control to insert help navigation into a hypertext file.

An HTML Help executable program is a program that shows and runs help when you open a compiled help file.

HTML Help compiler is a program that builds a project, content, project sections and other files into a single help system.

The HTML Help Authoring Guide is a guide designed to help authors use HTML Help to develop a reference system. The guide also contains comprehensive reference information about HTML Help for developers and reference information about hypertext tags for authors.

I think that this software can help people that are in the coding department although it is HTML based. It could help you with files. I recommend this software for someone that has basic or moderate skills in the computer field.

It has very little details and doesn’t really describe what I am searching. Gives you files sizes and stuff but not to much explaining the product I’m putting my money into. Thank God I know about Windows already because otherwise I would have been 100% lost.

HTML Help Workshop is a free HTML authoring tool from Microsoft. It enables users to create help files and tutorials for Windows programs. I have used this software several times and it is fairly easy to use. It offers a straightforward interface that is intuitive and simple to understand. The options are clearly laid out and the help files are comprehensive and easy to read. The tutorial that it provides is also very helpful in understanding the program. It is quite light on system resources so it doesn't bog down my computer. The only issue I have encountered is that it has some compatibility issues with older versions of Windows.

HTML Help Workshop made it easy for me to quickly create and edit help files for my software. The program is intuitive and had a good number of features for formatting, linking, and creating custom windows. I found it was easy to compile my projects into .chm files and deploy them. The UI could use a few improvements, but overall it is a great tool for creating help documents.
