Activar autocompletado en CMD de Windows

To enable file and folder completion for one use of the command processor,
type CMD /F:ON, which sets the file completion character to CTRL+F and the
path completion to CTRL+D. To disable it for the current session, type CMD
/F:OFF.


To set file name completion via the registry, use Regedt32 to navigate to:


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor



Edit or Add Value name CompletionChar as a REG_DWORD data type. A data value
of 0 turns off filename completion.
A data value in the range of 0x1 - 0x1F turns it on, where the data value is
the ASCII control character.
A data value of 0x4 is CTRL+D, while 0x6 is CTRL+F.


To set path completion, Edit or Add Value name PathCompletionChar as a
REG_DWORD data type. A data value of 0 turns off path completion.
A data value in the range of 0x1 - 0x1F turns it on, where the data value
is the ASCII control character.
A data value of 0x4 is CTRL+D, while 0x6 is CTRL+F.



NOTE: Both these Value Names can also be configured at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER takes precedence.

NOTE: When you press the file or path completion, the first matching entry
appears. Pressing it again retrieves the next entry in the list.
To go backwards, press SHIFT+<completion-character>.
