Not two seconds after I clicked the Send button on my first message, I
checked ForeHelp (I use ForeHelp Premier 2000) and found something under
Tools > Context Tools. It's called QuickFix. It's a small dialog that
displays on top of your app and when you hit F1, the dialog displays the
context ID and other useful information.

From the feedback I received, it seems that other help software, such as
RoboHelp, have similar utilities.

I also found out, if you don't use ForeHelp or RoboHelp, that you can use
the Microsoft Help Workshop compiler. From the main window, select View >
WinHelp Messages. To set what displays in the message window, select View >
Message Options. When you hit F1 at an app, the context ID and other info
displays in the message window. Pretty slick.
