Text prediction in Windows Command prompt

Linux and certain UNIX shells has the ability to predict user keystroke. If You are typing a
directory name or a filename and if it exists, using this feature would help you in avoiding
those extra keystrokes. If you think that only these Operating Systems have these features,
then you are wrong. Windows XP command environment has this feature. You have to use
TAB key. Assume you are in C:\drive and want to type autoexec.bat and there is a file that
exists by that name. In such cases you can simply type first few characters and press the TAB
key. You would really be amazed at this finding. Now tell me honestly, do you think that
Windows is not smart enough?
