Here’s a little tip I picked up from a colleague. If you’re stuck in a Win32 world where the
cmd.exe completion setting isn’t defaulted to enable tab completion (like on Windows 2000). Look here: CompletionChar.
To cut right to the important bit, run
regedit and navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftCommand Processor in here you’ll find
PathCompletionChar – change both their values to 0x09.
There are equivalent CURRENT_USERS entries too if you prefer not to do it system-wide.
This is probably only Win2k … I’m stuck in the ancient past here. 😉
