Thousands of free online user manuals

It’s so fun to bring home a new gadget, but in all the excitement of unpacking and trying out your new gizmo, the last thing you’re thinking of is carefully filing and saving the owner’s manual.

Who needs the manual anyway? Your device is brand new and running like a charm. But when something does go wrong, or a setting needs to be changed later, the instructions are nowhere to be found.

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about this cool site, ManualsOnline.

Your go-to manual site

ManualsOnline holds owner’s manuals for more than 700,000 products, many dating back several years. You can search for major brands and manufacturers like Apple, LG, Sony, GE and more.

It has information on everything you’ll need, from your smartphone to your refrigerator. Best of all, they’re free to access! You can even upload your manuals in your very own account, so you know exactly where to find them the next time you have a problem.

(Psst! Even if you don’t need an owner’s manual right now, bookmark this site so you can find it again quickly, when you will inevitably need instructions.)

Thousands of manuals from dozens of top brands have been digitized and uploaded to ManualsOnline. If you need help, odds are you can find it in this website’s database. You can even read helpful hints and advice from other users.

ManualsOnline also makes it easy to keep track of your manuals when you buy a new product. If you sign in using an email address or Facebook account, you can scan copies of your manuals to add to the collection.
