How to get help in Windows 10

Windows 10

It is likely that on occasion we have a problem while using Windows 10. In this type of situation, the most common thing is that we search online for what may be the origin of the aforementioned problem. Although we can also resort to the support that Microsoft offers in the operating system, to be able to give a solution to it. To access this help, we have several ways.

Therefore, below we show you all the ways we have available to access this support in Windows 10. So if at any time we have a problem, we can access it and thus provide a solution, or at least be able to find a possible solution.

F1: Access to Quick Help

Possibly the fastest way and that most users in the operating system already know. We can access the quick help of Windows 10 by pressing the F1 key. Thanks to it, we will have help in processes that we are carrying out on the computer, as well as in the applications that we have in the operating system. We will be able to use it with all of them, this simple shortcut.

It is undoubtedly a very simple way to access it. When we press the F1 key, Edge will open on the computer, showing the way to enter the bracket. So we can then carry out our query on the computer. This is a preliminary step, although there are more ways available in the operating system.

Using Cortana

Cortana queries

The Windows 10 assistant can be useful in all kinds of situations, and this is one of them. Since we can use it to access this support in the operating system. We can use a voice command or write in the search bar that we have in the wizard, to be able to access this help on the computer. Both options are equally valid.

If what we use is the search bar that is in it, we just have to write support in it. Next we will get a series of options in this list, which give us access to the operating system support, in which we can solve the problems we have at that time. So what we have to do is click on the option that interests us at this time.

In this search, vLet's see that we usually get different options, also the ability to search online. It depends on the problem or its severity, it is possible that Microsoft support has a solution, if not, we can search the network directly.

Directly access Microsoft Support

If these previous options do not convince us, we can always directly access Microsoft technical support. Since this company support has a web page, in which we will be able to carry out all the queries that we have, regarding Windows 10 or some of the applications that are in the system. So it will help us in this troubleshooting in the operating system. So it is a very complete option.

Because either a problem with the operating system itself, or some of the Microsoft products that we use in it, it is very likely that we will find the solution to said failure or problem we have in it. One of the great advantages of this option is that in addition to the guides or solutions provided by Microsoft, there is a community on the web.

So that we can expose our problem to users, since there is probably someone who has or has had the same problem. So they can give us a solution that best fits our situation. Or we can be the ones to help other people. It can be both with Windows 10 and with previous versions of the operating system. To access Microsoft Support, simply access this link.

    I open the computer and the apps do not appear on the desktop. Only if I press the F1 key does Microsoft appear and I can access the internet.
