You can use the HelpNavigator.Topic property to specify the URL of the
required topic, or HelpNavigator.KeywordIndex to pass an index keyword
to the .chm file and display the topic associated with that keyword.
There are examples of both methods here:

Alternatively, you can use the techniques described in the following
article to display the topic mapped to a specific help context ID:
