    XP Help had a Favorites feature that allowed the user to bookmark topics. I
    liked it for a couple of reasons:

    1) Some subjects take alot of effort to find because the terminology is hard
    to identify or because the information is spread out into several topics.
    Bookmarking allowed me to get back to the info I found on a given subject
    without redoing a time-consuming search a few months later.

    2) When searching for one subject, I come across something else that I would
    like to look into later. Without bookmarks, it's hard to remember where the
    side issue was located (or what it was called).

    Is there a way to activate the Help Favorites functionality in Vista?

    And, BTW, why is there no Help index??? I guess search is supposed to
    replace the index, but searching brings in lots of extraneous info or
    sometimes nothing (if too specific). The index is a fast first effort that
    can be followed by searching if the subject isn't listed...
