AutoComplete For Command Prompt

This tip avoids headaches when using the command prompt console. It'll turn on the auto-complete feature so when you type 'cd d' and hit the tab key, the console will display the list of folders that begin with the 'd' letter, and you'll be able to choose the one you're looking for, right from the console instead of typing its path. To enable AutoComplete, follow these steps:

 1. Log on as Administrator
 2. Click on the Start button and select Run
 3. Type in 'regedit' and click OK
 4. Look for this key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor
 5. In the right pane double-click on 'CompletionChar'
 6. Type in '9' and click OK
 7. Close Regedit
