The actual scroll-pane sequence is:

With the Add-ons radio button clicked...

	Extra Utilities -> Notation -> Functions

If this is not what you're observing, you may want to do a sanity check
by evaluating the following expression in a notebook:

  FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["AddOns", "Functions"]]

If that produces a beep, the next thing that I would do would be to have
the front end to rebuild the Help Index.  This is done with the front
end menu command seqence:

	Help -> Rebuild Help Index

Repeat the FrontEndExecute[] command thereafter.  If this produces the
same beep error, then browse the hard drive where Mathematica is
installed.  You can do this by evaluating the following commands:

  ToFileName[{$TopDirectory,"AddOns", "ExtraPackages","Utilities",
      "Documentation", "English"}]]


This should return 


Either of the first two files is missing, you've found the source of
your problem.  Copy the files off of the Mathematica CD-ROM into this 
directory and then rebuild the Help Index.
