User Guide

What is User Guide?

The Samsung User Guide is installed in the software suite with most Samsung devices. It provides basic online documentation for using the specific device.


It is typically pre-installed with most new Samsung computers. The most common release is 1.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named runmanual.exe. The setup package generally installs about 40 files and is usually about 92.16 MB (96,634,977 bytes).

This program is pre-installed on some PCs

Pre-installed software such as this is usually included by default on the manufacturer's PC. Many OEM (original equipment manufacture) software that is included with a new PC is useful and in many cases required for the PC to function properly as in the case of various software drivers. However, some pre-installed software is optional and can be safely removed.
