Command Line Tab Completion in Windows NT/2000

This is an old trick for people used to bash on *nix machine, but noted here so that I remember to do it on every machine I use:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Command Processor

Change the value of the CompletionChar key to 9.

  1. I prefer running cmd.exe with /E:ON /F:ON switches. That way Ctrl+D is directory name completion and Ctrl+F is file name completion.
