Configuring Help in VBA Editor 2010

I've just started using VBA in 2010. In earlier versions of the VBA editor you just highlighted something and hit F1 and you got Help. Now when I do that I get an online webpage offering me a choice of:
* Excel 2010 Developer Reference
* Visual Basic for Applications Language Reference for Office 2010
*Object Library Reference for Office 2010
If I drill down I just get more options but no useful help, (and at 67 I wonder why I'm not sitting in a deckchair soaking up the sun.)
Searching for help on help is minefield because the search can be interpreted in so many ways, within Excel, within VB, producing help within ones code etc.

Please can someone tell me how to configure things so that F1 in the VBA editor gives me direct help. Thank you

Hi Mike

In the help page that opens (when you hit F1) in the bottom right corner can you see a button that probably says something like "Office Online" or some such value? Click this and change it to "Show Content From This Computer Only", then retry

At the bottom right of the Help window click the icon and select "Show content only from this computer".

Thank you both. One wonders how the designer of that webpage should think that that was intuitively obvious. It's in the category of "everything is simple when you know the answer". I can now carry on (and the deck chair is going to be empty for a bit longer.)

Thanks - Mike
