If this works, you can create a site profile (A default is created 
automatically in windows, if I remember correctly) where you can set this 
to run in each session.

[R] Using help in Windows version of R with disabled browser

Dear colleagues,

I am trying to get someone to use R on MS Windows with the browser
disabled. My question is how does he/she get to use R-help which goes
off the browser (and correspondingly complains about the inability to
start firefox, etc). In linux, which is what I use, this is not a
problem: what needs to be set in Windows to replicate this behavior?

Sorry if I am not clear: please feel free to ask me for clarifications. 

Thanks again for the helpful advice!

Best wishes,
