I assume that the contents is the way your TOC is structured. The default topic is then probably groups.htm. RH has no way of knowing which page you mean.
The easy solution may be to create two separate topics. Put the content of the current topic into a snippet and place the snippet on the two topics. Set the second topic as the default topic and all should be well.
First let's clear up some terminology. The Start Page is the tri-pane window that opens with the Toolbar, the Navigation pane and the Topic Pane. The Topic Pane is what displays the Default topic,
Are you saying that when the help is opened, it opens with the default topic but skips down to the bookmark? I can't see any way you could have set Rh up to do that.unless you had typed the bookmark into the Default Topic field.
Or are you saying this happens when the user clicks something in the TOC?
Include a screenshot with your reply if that will help clarify the problem.

Thank you, Peter. Snippets should do it, and I'll try that after this release. We're in a crunch.
Thank you! I'll try snippets after this release and I see that it should work.
