    Click the power/cog icon and select Ubuntu Help from the drop-down menu.

    Click on the dash button, or press the windows-logo key on your keyboard and type help.

    Depending on which version you're running, not all have the help inside the cog in the top right corner(such as precise, though all version after precise do)

    But the help can be accessed through the dash on all versions.

    As far as yahoo mail, I don't use it so I don't know how you install it. If you actually install it at all.

    Yahoo mail is webmail; it doesn't need installing. You simply open the browser of your choice in whichever operating system you wish to use, go to yahoo.com and sign in if you already have an account, or sign up if you want to create an account. It works just the same way if you use Firefox in Ubuntu as if you were using Internet Explorer in Windows or Safari in MacOS. Or were you thinking of something else?

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.
