Have UNIX-like Command Completion in windows 2000

Windows XP will do it, so will 2003 – give me 2000.

  • Run Regedit (Start Menu>Run; type in 'regedit')
  • Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER
  • Open subfolder Software
  • Open subfolder Microsoft
  • Open subfolder Command Processor
  • Double-click the key vale CompletionChar (right-hand side). Change the Value Datavalue to the ASCII value of the key you wish to use for command completion. Not allkeys will work - the reccomended value is 9 decimal which is the <TAB> key.
  • Quit regedit
