When using the help files, I find myself using right-click-back, back, back, forward, forward, back, forward, back, etc ... or scrolling up and down through the (huge) menu on the right-hand side to navigate my way through the API help files.

What would be really helpful would be a little alphabetically ordered drop down menu in the top-left hand corner of the html pane, or at the top of the books pane to allow you to re-visit pages in your browsing history with a single click (well, two clicks - one for the drop-down and one for the page).

Suppose you want the API for a JFrame (or any other component/command)
In your class file highlight/select the JFrame declaration.
Now  either
  • press CTRL F1 or
  • goto the Help -> JDK Help or
  • click the JDK help icon (you may to customise this first)

.... and the JFrame API should appear!
