You can try to redefine associated macro.
Let's assume, that your HTML file is "C:\MiKTeX\help\index.html".
1. Open "Options->Menu Setup..."
2. On the "Main menu" tab page double click the "&Help" item in the list.
3. In opened dialog, click on "&LaTeX2e" item. Now in the "Macro" field should
be something like "HTMLHelp("%$('TeX-Help');\latex2e.chm",1,1);" and in
"Requires File Filter" field "%$('TeX-Help');\latex2e.chm".
4. Replace text in the "Macro" field with
If your file name and/or path is different from supposed, change 2nd and 4th
parameters with full file path and file dir.
5. Clear "Requires File Filter" field. (Or set it to
"C:\MiKTeX\help\index.html", if you want to gray it out, when file doesn't exist)
You can find more information about menu options in WinEdt's help. Description
of ShellExecute macro is located in WinEdt's Macro manual.
