Command Prompt Tip

In a command window you can use the TAB key as "complete" key - like in unix/linux.

Example:
Start a cmd window and go to root (c:\)
type cd - hit TAB key - and you will now scroll the directories, also hidden ones.

Try: cd doc - hit TAB key - You get up "Documents and Settings" - hit enter. in Documents and Settings type cd and hit key several time - and you will scroll through the names of the directories - also the hidden ones.
