Windows 7: Location of "Windows Help and Support" file

Location of "Windows Help and Support" file

I had a "Windows Help and Support" entry in the Start Menu which I believe came with the installation (?). It disappeared. Where in the system does it live (so I can put it back in the Start Menu)?

Right click on the start orb and select properties.
Select the Start menu Tab
Then Customize.
Go down the list and put a check in the box next to Help.
Start Menu - Customize
Also you can get to Help by pressing F1 on your keyboard
or typing Help and support in the start search box.

F1 is going to be program-dependent.

WIN+F1 key combo will get you windows help.
