VIM: Using VIM Help (Help for Help)

Hi,
It is probably best if you accept that VIM's help is organised in the
Best Possible Way and that there is no easier method it's just there is
so much functionality (it took me a while to swallow this)

As a minimum you should know about using Control-D (<C-D>) and Tab

eg

:h reg<C-D>
and/or
:h reg<TAB>

" help for help (USE TAB)
:h quickref             : VIM Quick Reference Sheet (ultra)
:h tips                 : Vim's own Tips Help
:h visual<C-D><tab>     : obtain  list of all visual help topics
                        : Then use tab to step thru them
:h ctrl<C-D>            : list help of all control keys
:helpg uganda           : grep HELP Files use :cn, :cp to find next
:helpgrep edit.*director: grep help using regexp
:h :r                   : help for :ex command
:h CTRL-R               : normal mode
:h /\r                  : what's \r in a regexp (matches a <CR>)
:h \\zs                 : double up backslash to find \zs in help
:h i_CTRL-R             : help for say <C-R> in insert mode
:h c_CTRL-R             : help for say <C-R> in command mode
:h v_CTRL-V             : visual mode
:h tutor                : VIM Tutor
<C-[>, <C-T>            : Move back & Forth in HELP History
gvim -h                 : VIM Command Line Help
