I have been working with Windows 7's command line and have some folders that begin with non-alphanumeric characters. When I try to use tab completion to complete the folder name, the initial character is not included inside of the quotation marks.
C:\Users\username\!example is the folder I want to get into, but when I type:
<Tab> to autocomplete, it will complete to
instead of the expected
Any ideas on how to fix this besides changing the folder names?
EDIT: I realize I could just tab through the entire list after entering
cd, but I'm looking for a way to speed up the process. I have been spending a significant amount of time navigating these folders.
UPDATE: This also happens if there is a space in the directory. For example: "c:\Program Files". In order to continue using tab to complete, first the second quote has to be deleted.
"C:\Program Files" is what appears. To navigate to a subdirectory, first the quote after Program Files has to be deleted before the next directory can be spelled out.
