In prior Sage things that I've used, to get help with a particular function, say matrix, I would type matrix? then hit tab. However, this isn't working for me in the Jupyter notebook.

What operating system? How was Sage installed?

@slelievre Windows 10 Enterprise and installed using Sage 9.1 exe with documentation package installed as well.

@slelievre Just wanted to make sure you saw the above comment.

What happens if you type matrix? then the "enter" key instead of the "tab" key?

It depends how you installed Sage.

Many package managers have separate packages for various parts of Sage.

For example in Debian-based GNU/Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, there is a separate package for the SageMath Jupyter kernel, and for the documentation in each language, and for SageTeX.

Select from the list below what you want:

$ sudo apt install \
    sagemath \
    sagemath-jupyter \
    sagemath-doc-de \
    sagemath-doc-en \
    sagemath-doc-fr \
    sagemath-doc-hu \
    sagemath-doc-it \
    sagemath-doc-ja \
    sagemath-doc-pt \
    sagemath-doc-ru \
    sagemath-doc-tr \
    sagetex \
