    I just came across a utility called PyCmd.
    It has a very nice feature when trying to complete a directory or filename: instead of using Tab to cycle through matching names, it presents a list:
    type "cd pro <Tab>" and get a list of matches:

    C:\> cd pro
    Program Files\
    Program Files (x86
    ProgramData\
    C:\> cd "Program

    (It wouldn't surprise me if TCC had this capability, but I can't find it..."

    See "Filename Completion Window" in the Help.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Perfect. How do I restore Ctrl-Tab to bring up the FN Completion Window, rather than cycling through the tabbed windows?
    The documentation for NormalPopupKey is clear as mud...

    I don't know if that can be done. You can configure TCMD (Options menu) to send
    either/both/none of the Ctrl keys to tab windows (so TCC might show you the
    filename completion window) but a quick test shows that TCMD processes Ctrl-Tab
    regardless of the setting.

    Doesn't F7 do the same thing?
