This is a very good idea.  Possibly even better: display a screen on first 
use that says something like "We know you want to get right to work trying 
TeXworks.  Because TeX is different from most other software, you will save 
time and effort if you start by reading pages 1-3 (or whatever) in the 
user's guide." and then letting them click to go to the guide.
