Auto-complete in your command prompt

Ever tried to type in a long directory name and wish that you're able to auto-complete it? Actually this feature has been there for some time but few people know it.

Just go to the command prompt (e.g. run: cmd), and type out: cd\ |Tab| (e.g. cd \Pro|Tab|)

Using the key will help you scroll forward all the different directory names. Use shift |Tab| to scroll backwards.

That's it. For your information, the above also helps you auto-complete any filename within the directory you're in too. Have fun.
