That is probably not the best thing to do.

Instead, let me recommend that you put your cursor (I mean the
insertion point for new characters in the editor, not the mouse
pointer (just in case)) somewhere in the word "directory-exists?" and
then hit the f1 key.

Alternatively, use DrRacket's "help" menu, choose "Help Desk" and then
type "directory-exists?" in the search window you get there.

Or, if you like the command line, run "raco docs directory-exists?".
