TAB auto complete with wildcards

If you use the command shell in XP, then you probably already use the TAB key for auto-complete. One new thing (to me anyways) is that this also works with wildcards, so you can type this:

devenv *.sln

Hitting TAB will cycle through all files that match the pattern, for this example, you get this:

devenv Kilroy.sln

This is match faster than what I was doing before:

devenv K

Hitting TAB here, and you have to cycle through a dozen filenames that begin with K, before getting to the desired .sln file.
