The help option of an application generally contains lots of pages in a CHM file format, which contain the solution to all possible problems, but we are required to read only few of them. Our time will be drastically saved if we select those pages and save them as, we will not have to open that heap of pages again and again. So, I have a tool named as ‘Northbright CHM tool’, which can do this for you.
