You will find the online Help Center at your WebTV Homepage in the upper right-hand corner where it says simply "Help." Click on that link to be taken to a Main Index. From there you can find answers, email WebTV personnel if you do not find an answer, or search further by clicking on "Find An Answer" at the top of each screen.
It is advisable to become familiar with the WebTV Online Help Center and to use this handy resource first. It is often overlooked as your best source of information. Keep it in mind next time!
