Default I NEED HELP!

Ok, I am having lots of trouble here.

I did a tutorial in the official Maya Help section(F1) for making a realisitic looking orange. It used something(a material) that was already loaded into maya, and now I cant find where that is. I have many things that I would like to use some of those good materials for.

Now, your thinking "Just go back into the help section, you retard." Buuutt... Its not working now. When I press "F1" although an internet page comes up, nothing is on it. Its completely blank.

WTF is happening?

I just found something called a "Visor" which I seem to remember. I have just flitted through the options and unfortunetly, it uses brushes, something I dont know how to use yet. Can someone lend an ear?
