    Help doesn't work without internet


    In Windows 7 I could press F1 with the desktop selected and would get help.

    If I do this in Windows 10 without the internet connected, I just get a screen saying "Get connected to the Internet".
    This is crazy - there's lots of times when I am away from an internet connection and still want help!

    If I do have internet, I just get an awful Bing search page - spit! (Yes I know I can use the ghastly search tool and press "Search My Stuff").

    Is there no hope here?

    GPS not working in Lumia 535

    Hallo all,



    I understood that the GPS of 535 doesn't work without internet connection, plz correct me if I'm wrong. I have the same problem.



    I don't understand why the moderator doesn't tell us this instead of trying to reset or use another app, it just doesn't work without internet. This means actually that you have got no GPS, real GPS works without internet like TomTom.



    Can we get some answer from Nokia it self?

    Help doesn't work without internet

    don't use help much myself ,couldn't agree more that it should have some help topics in the system, not having to go online to get help ,,but when I hit f1 I don't get a bing page I get this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/i...eric_help_menu
