CMD Tab-completion in Windows 2000

Might be the last one in the world to discover this W2K tweak, but just in case others are interested; here's how to get "tab completion" (famous from the unix world and also (I hear) now default in Windows XP command prompts) in Windows 2000:
  1. Hit the "Start" button
  2. Select "Run"
  3. enter "regedit", hit OK
  4. Expand "My computer" (by clicking the little [+] beside it)
  6. Expand SOFTWARE
  7. Expand Microsoft
  8. Expand Command Processor
  9. Double-click "CompletionChar"
  10. Replace the value that's there with 9 (which is the ASCII equivalent of the TAB key)
  11. Click OK

To enjoy, Hit the "Start"-button, then "Run" then type "cmd" and try typing cd Doc then hitting TAB... "Documents and Settings" should autocomplete...
