    Well, you can't really find any additional information by looking at the listed enumerations in the Object Browser, because clicking the help button will just generate an error message.

    What you can do is read about an enumerated value when you read a help topic that describes a property or method which makes use of such a value. For example, the help topic on the Type property of the View object gives you some info (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/api/word.view.type?f1url=%3FappId%3DDev11IDEF1%26l%3Den-US%26k%3Dk(vbawd10.chm161808384)%3Bk(TargetFrameworkMoniker-Office.Version%3Dv16)%26rd%3Dtrue).
