Quite frequently, I press F1 instead of F2.
How can I close the Excel Help Task Pane without my hands leaving the keyboard?
The only effective way I found to do so is to use this macro:
Sub CloseHelpPane() Application.CommandBars("Help").Visible = FalseEnd Sub
It's recommended to insert this macro into the Personal Macro Workbook.
Then add this macro to the Quick Access Toolbar so you can fire it using an Alt key shortcut.
Hope that helps
