10.5: Disable searching for support articles in Help Viewer
Authored by: n1mie on Mar 17, '09 08:13:36AM

Not sure why someone would be against Apple knowing their help searches. I certainly hope Apple is using that information to improve their products and/or the help that is provided with them. The down side of being a power user is that most of the help is written to a much lower level.

Some of us have slow internet connections, and these internet Help file retrievals can take forever.

I wouldn't mind Apple knowing about my Help queries if it would actually DO something with the data (such as prepare real manuals for its applications and OS.

The reason why I turn it off is because I don't trust Apple (to do the right thing for me as a consumer). Do you?

But you do trust that setting this default to "No", does in fact stop sending the search text to Apple? ;-)
