    Anyone know why one would get dual help files and how to read them when I have more than one hit? This output is not an array so I can't reference one of the files with an index number.

    C:\Users\bc\Google Drive\Code> help about_Workflows
    
    Name                              Category  Module                    Synopsis
    ----                              --------  ------                    --------
    about_Workflows                   HelpFile                            Provides a brief introduct...

    That's really odd. I'm running Windows 10 ENT and ran

    Update-Help -Force

    again to make sure my help files were updated, and I see what you are experience, and it's more than just this topic. I am however able to view help

    Help about_Comment_Based_Help

    without issue but other topics are showing two options and neither display the help.

    This may be a bug, but I'll defer to someone more experienced than I on this topic.
