Object Predefined Properties and Methods

Where does one find a list of predefined properties and methods (example dict ) that on object has when created?

The documentation is excellent!

For dict specifically, look in the section on built-in types.

In a Python shell, you can also check the built-in help() function

>>> help(dict)

and you can get the attributes of any object using the dir() function

>>> dir({})
['__class__', '__class_getitem__', '__contains__', '__delattr__', '__delitem__',
 '__dir__', '__doc__', '__eq__', '__format__', '__ge__', '__getattribute__',
 '__getitem__', '__gt__', '__hash__', '__init__', '__init_subclass__', '__ior__',
 '__iter__', '__le__', '__len__', '__lt__', '__ne__', '__new__', '__or__',
 '__reduce__', '__reduce_ex__', '__repr__', '__reversed__', '__ror__',
 '__setattr__', '__setitem__', '__sizeof__', '__str__', '__subclasshook__',
 'clear', 'copy', 'fromkeys', 'get', 'items', 'keys', 'pop', 'popitem',
 'setdefault', 'update', 'values']

Thank you for the information Thomas.
