Is there a way to enable offline viewing of Excel 2013's help window like that of 2010's?

Every time I hit the F1 button, Excel wants to connect to the internet to help me!

Thank you!

At the top of the help window, there's the "Excel Help" title. Click the little arrow beside the title, a dropdown menu appears, and select "Excel Help from your computer"

Thank you! But I wanted Offline help for VBA too! –  MSS Jul 15 '13 at 18:33

You can download offline VBA help here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40326

Unfortunately, the downloaded offline help isn't integrated into VBA. If you hit F1 on a keyword in VBA, it still goes to Internet. –  SF Lee Nov 2 '14 at 22:41
