A help menu was part of a computer's software package that would assist a user in performing tasks.
An interactive help menu in the form of a cartoon stapler was part of Image, a hard-light hologram. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory mistook the stapler for part of an infestation of spam emails. During any problem, it would suddenly pop up, note what it looked like someone was attempting to do and ask if it could assist that person. They considered this annoying. When the Doctor understood what it was, he allowed it to help him fool the Scroungers. It also aided Amy and Rory by pacifying the spam that used the forms of Joanne Richards and Claude.
