Photoshop: Is there context-sensitive help?

Seems like Photoshop CC and CS6 no longer has context-sensitive help, just PDFs and web help? Am I missing something, or does Adobe no longer provide context-sensitive help. When did it disappear?

Do you mean tooltips? (The little yellow messages when you roll over a tool or button?)

No, products used to bring up topic or task page in a help system window when you pressed ? or F1. Now, I don't see ? icons anywhere and pressing F1 only brings up web page for product help and you have to navigate to areas where information might be. Thanks,

Photoshop never had ? buttons, but we did use to use an AIR application that loaded the web content instead of using the system browser. We did away with the extra application, and now use the system browser for help.

We did have some context help on MacOS back in the MacOS 7/8/9 days -- but that went away even before we moved to MacOS 10.
