Whenever I try to use help it points me to a web page that states .hlp files are only supported for Vista or earlier.

What a nightmare. It looks like Windows 10 users will need to either use the online documentation at https://mushclient.com/docs or the SQLite-based MUSHclient_Help plugin.

Googling around, I see that technically there is a way to run WinHelp32.exe on Windows 10, but it's not something that I can recommend as advice for the general user.

There is a plugin called MUSHclient_Help that ships with MUSHclient. That shows the help information in the output window. For example you can type "mchelp triggers".

Go to the File menu -> Plugins and click "Add". Then choose "MUSHclient_Help.xml" from the plugins directory.

The help database ships with the client nowadays, so you will get the same information as in the help file. Also it is the same information that appears on the web page:
