How to access .chm files


Have you ever downloaded a help file (.chm extention) and couldn’t read the content? I had this issue a few weeks back when I had to check something in the “Installation Team Foundation Installation Guide for Visual Studio 2010”. I had to think a few seconds before I remembered that I needed to unblock the content.

  1. Open Windows Explorer
  2. Right-click .chm file and select Properties
  3. Choose Unblock

…and the content is readable.
