Is there an autocomplete function in file dialogs?

Post by coupland » Mon May 29, 2017 5:49 pm

Is there a hotkey or any other way to autocomplete a file or folder name while typing it in a dialog?

My image library is massive and they are often nested several subfolders deep. When I hit Alt+M to move a file, I don't want to have to type:

X:\photos\candid\weddings\receptions

in its entirety. Is there a hotkey or other function that will start to autocomplete the path as I type? Thanks in advance!

Thanks Pierre for answering. I hope you'll consider adding this feature as both FS and ACD have it and it's very convenient. That said, XnView is far superior to either of those products, so I'm not complaining!
