Offline help for IPS XE 2020 in VS 2019

Hello. I would like to have complete IPS XE 2020 help locally on my computer. I found out that it is possible to download the complete documentation, so I did so, and I now have a single file psxe_docs_p_2020.0.007.zip.

My questions are:

  • Is there a recommended location where the zip file contents should be unzipped?
  • Is it possible to setup VS 2019 in such a way that pressing F1 opens the local help?
  • What should I do when pressing F1 in VS 2019 opens the local help for IPS XE 2017 Update 2 that is also installed on my computer?

Thank you very much; I followed instructions and F1 help now works well in VS 2019, opening XE 2020 documentation instead of XE 2017.

I would not mind having the complete offline help included in the installation of IPS as e.g. an optional additional download that would download and install help automatically.
