Publisher's description

Universal AutoComplete UAC adds a system-wide HotKey which, when pressed, will Attempt to AutoComplete the path or filename currently being entered in any window (particularly the standard Open and Save windows, and the Explorer Address bar). UAC requires little to no screen space and will lurk quietly as a System Tray icon until used. This is a utility to add an AutoComplete on request function to all windows filename prompts. These include the Open and Save windows, the address bar in Explorer, and pretty much anything else that requires you to type in a file name or path. Some users may prefer to use the mouse-based interface to click their way through to the file they want - fair enough, but I find that tedious, and that typing the name and path of the file is usually FASTER. IE4 added AutoComplete to the address bar in Windows Explorer, but to my knowledge there is no way to force it to complete something other than waiting, and sometimes it will not even do it then. Inspired by TrayCL, this utility adds a system-wide HotKey to complete the path or filename currently being typed in. If you are typing in c:\my documents\, for example, then all that is required would be to type c:\m then press the HotKey. If there are more than one files or folders starting with m in c:\ then a drop down list of all alternatives will appear, and one can be selected using the arrow keys. I usually use the HotKey several times in a path, as my usual path would be something like "c:\files\programs\visual basic\scriptsmith\versionhistory.txt". Using UAC (Universal AutoComplete), this becomes "c:\fi^pr^s^v^", where ^ represents the HotKey. The HotKey is Ctrl+\ by Default, but this can be customized. UAC is unobtrusive, and only adds an icon to the system tray. In FACT, if even this is too much space, then it can be turned off. In ordinary use it will be completely transparent, and simply adds a useful function to windows. Linux users have had this feature in their command prompt shells for years!
