Tab! Hit the tab key twice!

To show listing of available options just hit TAB twice! This works in many places. Try cd tabtab. or jut c tab tab…

example - apt-get install ub tab tab lists everything that starts with ub
example - ls docum tab tab lists everything in the directory that starts with docum
