Can you get Python language help to appear in the VS Help menu?

I am a beginner at both Visual Studio and Python. I have installed Visual Studio 2013, PTFVS, and Cpython 3.4.2 . I am wondering if it's possible to get Cpython help to appear in the Visual Studio Help system, from the Help option in VS.

welcome chuck. unfortunately help isnt integrated. we can look at that feature for a future release. note that there is a ton of python help online. and you do get intellisense.

also - as recommended in the Installation page, it's best to install a full distro, like Anaconda or Canopy. Python really is Cpython + packages.
