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 key, Excel wants to connect to the internet to help me!

Edit: Is there a way to enable offline viewing for VBA for Excel 2013 as well?

Open Help in Excel. At the top of the Help window click the little arrow to the right of the Excel Help title. In the drop-down menu select Excel Help from your computer: enter image description here

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.
