There are various levels of Help within WinHSPF and they may be accessed in different ways. The Help menu title on the main WinHSPF form has two menu items: About and Contents. The About item is used to display a summary of the version of WinHSPF being run. The Contents item is used to bring up a window that allows the user to move throughout the entire WinHSPF help file. The user may move through the help file by using the hierarchical structure or the index of help topics.
