You want to do this in IE? Do you want to save the word "help" or do you want to save the text of the page that comes up when you open the help hyperlink? We need more details...

yes i can do it on ie, altough i rather go for firefox, but ie is ok

i would like to save all that is possible for learning purposes :), but the fundamental is the "help" name of the link, and maybe later the link

i really dont need the statusbar as i already seen a lot of help about it

You should look into the _IE functions in the helpfile, they can do all that of you ask. :)

1. Download ie.au3 from this link: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...6&hl=ie.au3

2. Switch browsers to IE and try some of the sample code.

With ie.au3 functions you don't have to tab through commands to find the Help link. You just send a command to it to open the link.
