>From my previous reply:

   From searching the archives, it looks like the "What's this?" item was
   added because "What's this?" apparently has a standard meaning to MS
   Windows users.  But it sounds very cryptic if you do not use MS
   Windows and hence are not used to it.

Well, "What's this" is apparently also used by KDE (I normally use
GNOME, which is why I am not familiar with it).  But it is used very
differently by KDE (I can not check how it is used by MS Windows).
After you select "What's this", the mouse indicator changes to an
arrow with a question mark, clearly showing that you are supposed to
click on something about which you want explanation.  And it appears
mainly intended to click on the main work area or the tool bar rather
than on the menu bar.  It does not appear to work for menu bar
entries.  In the KDE applications I tried, I did not get any docs by
clicking on menu bar items after selecting "What's this".
