Bring back Offline Help in Office 2016
In Office 2013 and previous versions it was possible to choose between Online Help and Offline Help. In Office 2016 there is only Online Help, Offline Help is no longer available. Please bring back this option.
Thanks for your feedback. Our product help is now online only in order to allow us to deliver better content faster as new Office features, updates, and improvements are released.
Dear sir & madam,
kindly i would like to inform you why i cant open my windows showing some problem please find me solution for solve this problem .
Agreed 100% with above poster to bring back OFFLINE help.
I would really like to sent the whole Microsoft management team on a trip to an area where there is no or poor internet access in the area or during even during their flight as planes. This would quickly solve the delusional idea that OFFLINE help is NOT required at all.
Please consider all the people who do need to work in airplanes during flight or are on the road.
I need offline help for my work. When I'm on the road I have no internet access for my laptop. To introduce Office 2016 in my company I need it too, as during missions and can not be guaranteed for a monilen Internet.
There are people who live in rural areas and do not have reliable and/or affordable access to the Internet.

Replace the on-line help system with a local file based system that actually works. Office has had nearly unusable help since they added the online option, and Office 2016 help doesn't work most of the time.
