Gimp manual

Kalanco
I read on Gimp.org that the english user manual is built in. But when I click
help, I get a message that the user manual is not installed.
Whaere can I get a cooooopy of the user manual for 2.8.20?

Who told you that? It has to be installed separately

Ok, You are using Windows, and in the USA

If you go to here: https://www.gimp.org/downloads/ and click on the Microsoft
Windows link in:

Show downloads for GNU/Linux | OS X | Microsoft Windows | All

Gives you this

https://download.gimp.org/mirror/pub/gimp/help/windows/2.8/2.8.2/gimp-help-2-2.8.2-en-setup.exe

Download, run, it will find your Gimp installation and install help

Anyway, you did not read far enough

Nice one, but you have to remember the UNIX/now linux origins of GIMP where a
package - GIMP - will install specified dependencies which could include the
HELP packages.

Not the case with Windows. To include HELP with all the languages, the Gimp
Windows installer would be, I don't know, maybe 100 MB larger. Not worth it.

What you do get is a  built-in help browser plugin that can access the HELP
files when installed.
