I have an install of Windows XP SP3 OEM that I use often. Recently its
cmd.exe somehow forgot that pressing TAB means I want to use the completion feature.
I found out how to fix this problem here, and it worked just fine.
Cause for concern:
I was surprised and confused by what the completion character was set to.
The completion character was set to the ASCII
SUB character, 0x1a, or 26.
- What is the ASCII
SUBcharacter, 0x1a, or 26, used for? Can I type it? Can I type it in one keystroke?
- What could have caused it to be set to anything else that the ASCII
TABcharacter, 0x09, or 9?
