autocompeletion for terminial


Hi i have been using linux for quite some time now but is there an autocomplete for the console its getting really irritating to type in the full commands. I am not talking about the up and down key. Something like when you use run in MS windows

you can try typing in part of the command and pressing <tab>. Most modern shells have autocompleting implemented this way.
