Start menu search auto-completing "re" to "Remote Desktop Connection"
The Start menu search already uses autocomplete: just two letters in and I can hit enter. Even faster than mstsc!

The Start menu search, Cortana, search engines, and more all suggest as you type.  But to get this goodness in your File Explorer, Run box, and other common dialogs like Save As and Open, or combo boxes in places like in mstsc, you’ll need to head to the obvious place, …your Internet Options…of course.

The quickest way to reach the Internet Options is type Windows+R to open the run box, and enter this magical phrase:  inetcpl.cpl

When you click OK, you’ll see options that are used by Internet Explorer most commonly. Head to the Advanced tab though, and you’ll find options ranging from the mundane to the critical, from multimedia to encryption and security.  But if you page down twice, you’ll land somewhere near the Auto Complete options for File Explorer:

Click below the scroll box on the scroll bar twice, and you should land near the Inline Auto Complete options.
Click below the scroll box on the scroll bar twice, and you should land near the Inline Auto Complete options.

After you click apply, you’ll see inline suggestions as you type, brining you just a few keystrokes closer to your task every day.
