To get the vim user-manual I am doing

vi test

and then, once the file is opened, I do

:help user-manual

This opens up a split window, which makes reading manual inconvenient to read. How do I only open the user-manual in the full window ?

:h user-manual | only

only : Make the current window the only one on the screen. All other windows are closed.

See: :h only

Open from terminal:

vi[m] -c 'h user-manual|only'

After opening the user manual, type :only to close all other windows.

Or, you can just read the manual online at VimDoc.
