NorthBright CHM Tool Can Convert Windows Help CHM Files To HTML Format


CHM (Compiled HTML Help) is a format of help files, which is developed by Microsoft for publishing help manuals with their software and application releases. CHM is a compiled file which consists of hyperlinked table of contents referring towards corresponding main content. As it is a compiled HTML help file, users are unable to publish/extract single page or multiple pages from a CHM file.

Now launch the application, it will automatically find the opened CHM page source and allow you to quickly decompile the page’s content. Click Save to specify the location of output folder.
