Get Help with Using Microsoft Money

Microsoft Money Help Screen

Click on the question mark icon in the upper-right corner of Microsoft Money to bring up the Help pane on the right side of the screen. There are a few different ways to use the Help function:

All Topics

Click on the All topics bar at the top of Microsoft Money Help to see full list of all Help topics organized by section. Each general section has a ‘+’ next to it, indicating that there are more specific topics under the section. Click on the general section and a list of help topics specific to the general section appears.


You will see Find on the top Microsoft Money Help bar, next to All Topics. Click on Find then search the all the Help files by using a keyword or phrase.

Search for help

Search for help appears a the bottom of the Microsoft Money Help screen when you have All Topics opened, but will not appear if you have Find open. If you do not see Search for help, click on All Topics and it will appear at the bottom of the Help window.

Type a phrase into the box below Search for help to learn more about an area or feature in Money. For example, you can type "mutual funds" (leave off the quotes), then click the arrow button to learn more about handling mutual fund data or about fund tracking features (depending on the version of Microsoft Money you are using).

Forward and Back

You will see two arrows at the top of the Help screen. These two arrows function just like a web browser, with the left arrow going back a page when clicked and the right arrow going forward a page when clicked. Forward and Back are useful when you are browsing Help topics.
