On a Mac, the approach you describe above doesn't seem possible
without using the mouse. The issue is when the Help Browser page
is appears, the focus is on the search input box. Consequently,
the key stroke to Select All selects the contents of the search
box rather than all of the cells. Clicking the mouse once on the
window anywhere except the search box causes the focus to
change. Now all of the cells can be selected and opened using
key strokes.
