Hi experts
Could someone tell me how to configure the behaviour of the 'Home' button so that it will go to certain page.
Please see attached screenshot for the 'Home' button and its current behaviour.

Thank you.

I am using Winform, .NET 3.5, C#, and Windows.Forms.Help.

You can set the click event eg

// Navigates webBrowser1 to the home page of the current user. 
private void homeButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Open in new window

Thanks Michael74 for your prompt response.

I apologize for not having mentioned the code I used to bring up the Help. I was actually using the 'Windows.Forms.Help' class and the 'ShowHelp' method.

Help.ShowHelp(parentForm, fileLocation);

Open in new window

Therefore, the click event handler that was suggested might not be applicable in my situation. Could you please point me the right direction.

When using ShowHelp are you calling a chm file or another file type

Then again I would look at using HTML Help Workshop to resolve this as the functionality come from the chm file not winforms
