Rbreb13 Posted September 26, 2004 Report Share Posted September 26, 2004 Enable Auto-complete in the Command Prompt To do this, you must be logged on with Administrator rights. Run Regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Command Processor. Right-click on the CompletionChar DWORD and choose Modify. Change its value to 9. After you reboot, the next time you're in a command prompt, try typing cd followed by the first letter of the folder you're interested in and then hit the Tab key. You'll see the first directory that begins with your letter; continue to hit Tab, to scroll through all of the folders with your designated letter. This trick works with files and folders and various commands, such as rd and copy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
