One of the annoying things about Google’s applications is that they use online hyperlinked help broken up into numerous small pages – which is great if you know exactly what you’re looking for. The system falls down into a nightmare of clicks, though, if you’re trying to get an overview of an application, or have to go hunting for information without knowing where it’s filed. This acts as a barrier to using the full functionality of the applications for many people.
Unofficial weblog Google Operating System has a great tip if you’re in this situation: add ?fulldump=1 to the URL of the Google help center for things like GMail or Google Docs to get all of the help on a single (often huge) web page. Then you can save these to your desktop to peruse at your leisure. You’ll find handy links over at the GOS post.
