Leo is an application that guides users who are new to MS Office, Firefox, Facebook and iTunes. It functions in two modes, the Guide Me and Do it mode. A task can selected to perform (e.g. importing bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox) by searching it out and selecting it in Leo and run it in either of the two mode. In the Do it mode the application/website automatically opens and areas are highlighted to perform the task. On the contrary, the Guide Me mode opens the app and shows a demo to perform the task.
To get started, open Leo and search for the task that you wish to perform in any application. This will give you two options, the Do it and Guide Me option. The Do it mode will open the application and guide you step by step by highlighting places that you need to click on (in steps). Whereas, the Guide me mode will show you a demo to help you perform the task.
In both modes, the required areas are highlighted with a message explaining the procedure. For instance, if you are required to go to Tools in Firefox, tools will be highlighted, after that if you required going to Options, the Options area will be highlighted after you click Tools (in the Do it mode). The same procedure will be done in a demo view in case you choose the Guide Me mode.
Leo is a good tool for not just getting help with MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint,, Firefox, Facebook and iTunes but can also be useful in learning convoluted applications such as MS Outlook. The only downside is that it currently does not support MS Office 2010, nonetheless, the developer has assured to add support for more applications in the near future.

Leo works with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, provided you have .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 or higher.
