    Help button in Explorer and upload of data?


    Hello everyone

    In every folder in Windows Explorer, right under the (X), there is a (?) / the help button.
    When I click it, it opens Microsoft Edge browser and then makes a search regarding help for Explorer in Windows 10.

    Is the search in any way related to the contet of the folder?

    Is any content of the folder uploaded to the Microsoft Edge server during the proces?

    I assume, that the answer is NO to both, but I just wanna make sure.

    Thank you in advance for replying

    Best regards

    It's just a File explorer Help search and does not involve any of your content - it behaves in exactly the same way whichever folder is in view and whatever files are in it.

    Sorry for necroing this thread

    In MS Paint, just below the (X) there is a blue (?) help button.
    When I click it, it opens Microsoft Edge browser and then makes a search regarding help for Paint in Windows 10.

    Is the search in any way related to the picture / file open in MS Paint?

    Is the picture / file open uploaded to the Microsoft Edge server during the proces?

    I assume, that the answer is NO to both, but I just wanna make sure.

    I have no reason to think so.
