    Gary, I’m running High Sierra (can’t upgrade any further on my 2010 iMac). I don’t see “Menu Items” after I pull up the Help menu. All I see are a list of the Help Topics. So I can’t see the neat features. Is that a Catalina feature?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Mark: No, it has been around for a while. Have you tried different words? Different apps?

    This is a fabulous tip.
    Long time Mac Users are used to leaving manuals in the shrink-wrap and being just fine.
    Today things are not so intuitive, I find, and every now and then I have to break down and look for help (usually Google it) This will be faster.

    You’re right Gary, it is a great shortcut, and as one who loves using keyboard shortcuts I have a chuckle thinking that the keyboard is sort of like an AM/FM radio, never seems to go out style or functionality, turn it on and it works :)

    Great hint. Apple should put you on their payroll!
