I just pressed F1 now - and automatic updates came asking me to update help files. I pressed "ok". It was updated and F1 is working for now.

may be - you have some problem with internet? ... or MT5 is not connected with MQ server?

It got to be something like that. Though when switching to the "Code Base" tab and rightclick to download an indicator it works. And in the Metatrader itself I see a connection symbol in the right bottom corner but also got some connection error message as well.

I already reinstalled the MT5 but the problem still persists.

You can open demo account on MetaQuotes demo, check the connection (see the image above) and press F1 :

In MT5 in   Tools > Options > Community  did you enter your correct  mql5 forum User ID (Login) and Password ?

Yes, as you can see from the link in my post above it is 24.6 / 0.0 Mb. This is a demo account from ActiveTrades.


Regarding opening MetaQuotes demo, when I go to open new account, it doesn't show a MetaQuotes demo server to select from. Do I have to download a new MT installation from Metaquotes?



@RaptorUK

Yes, I did. Checked it twice.

It's not needed to download an other MT5 for Metaquotes. You can open a demo account within your current platform. You simple have to add Metaquotes-Demo server to your list of server. Anyway, it's not mandatory to use a demo from Metaquotes to have F1 help file to work. Your issue isn't very clear. Can you post a screenshot of what you get when you hit F1 key in MetaEditor ?
