Hi Zach, in fact, it's not a problem with Python itself, but with Idle.

I just downloaded a virtualbox image via ( and started the installation of Python 3.6.5

and when you execute IDLE, "help()" is not present, but this sentence is present in the prompt of python3.

I am going to provide a small patch.
