AutoComplete in file dialogs

This is something that essentially all competitors have. When in move / file / save dialogs it would be great to have an autocomplete function. Typing in something like this:

C:\My Pictures\Photography\Stills\Black & White

is very cumbersome. In a tool like ACD you can reduce the number of keystrokes significantly because it autocompletes folder names as you type them. So you would instead type something like:

C:\My P [downarrow] Ph [downarrow] St [downarrow] Bl [downarrow]

Instead of typing 47 keystrokes, you've only typed 17. It also greatly reduces the number of typos you make. When you manipulate a lot of photos this can save you hundreds or even thousands of keystrokes in an hour. I hope you'll consider this feature, as it's the only annoyance left in what is otherwise the perfect piece of software.
