    You know what some linux users miss in the Windows command prompt. It’s auto-completion of file names. In Linux, if you want the file name to be auto-complete, press “TAB” key.

    You know what some linux users miss in the Windows command prompt. It’s auto-completion of file names. In Linux, if you want the file name to be auto-complete, press “TAB” key.

    The same thing can be achieved in Windows command prompt with an additional feature. If you keep hitting the “TAB” key, it will give you let you browse through all the directory and file names in the directory that you are in.

    In Windows XP, the auto-complete option is disabled. You can enable this in 2 ways.

    To use the Power Toys -> Tweak UI application provided for free by Microsoft. Tweak UI is a must have application which not only lets you enable Auto-complete but also various other tweaks to your Windows machine which otherwise would have to modified in the Windows Registry.You can

    the Tweak UI application from Microsoft’s website.After installing the application, open Tweak UI.

    As shown in the picture above, select the “Command Prompt” option. There are two options for you to choose. You can enable auto-completion of both File and Directory names. You can either choose what keys you want to use for the auto-completion.  I would recommend using a “TAB” key because you will feel native even when you use Linux command line.

    The other way to enable auto-complete is to modify the Windows Registry. You can find a Knowledge base article in the Microsoft webiste .
