On my Mac (with version 2.7.12), selecting Help -> IDLE Help brings up a window titled "IDLE Help", it has a pop down with "TOC" selected and many pages of text documentation.

On my Windows system (also with version 2.7.12), selecting help -> IDLE help does nothing.  I tried it from both the Shell window and from an editor window, and no documentation window appeared.
