2. Go to Advanced tab, find and check the following option under Browsing section near in the middle of the list.
Use inline AutoComplete in Windows Explorer and Run Dialog box
3. Click OK, and done.
Now, let’s take look the result.
Here is typing in Windows Explorer before the setting is applied.
And here is after, in which the word “desktop” is automatically filled in.
Here is tying in Run dialog box before the setting is applied.
