Is there any way to save the help file (opened from /help), or is there any way to download it?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

It's already saved in your mIRC settings directory (folder). The file name is mirc.chm with the yellow question mark icon.

type //run $mircdir

Argh >_< It's identified as a ChemDraw file, and I've no idea what program I should use to open it. CS ChemDraw Pro can't be used to open it.

Right click on the file, click Open With, select Microsoft HTML Help Executable, Click OK. If this is not in the Open With list, just browse to the executable which is in your windows directory named hh.exe.

~Edit~
Remember, hh.exe, not winhelp.exe or winhlp32.exe. Those are for help files with the .hlp extension.

could also do "/run hh mirc.chm" in mIRC, though this would not set the file association.
