Where is my ThinkPad User's Guide? - ThinkPad
Access Help application - User's Guide information
Note: A User's Guide is not included with newer ThinkPad systems, therefore it is also not available in PDF or hardcopy format.

ThinkPad systems are preloaded with the Access Help application which contains information similar to that which would be included in a User's Guide. The Access Help application is a searchable help database included with your preload that contains:
  • System locations, views, and connections
  • How to setup, configure, and customize your system including:
    • Power management
    • Networking
    • Wireless
    • Display settings
  • Enabling system protection including:
    • Virus protection
    • Recovery techniques
    • Security software
    • General maintenance
  • Upgrade and update information for hardware and software

You can access this application by pressing the appropriate button on the top left of your keyboard.
