When you are entering a command in the Cisco terminal , you can use the Tab key to complete the command. Enter the first few characters of a command and press the Tab key. If the characters are unique to the command, the rest of the command is entered in for you. This is helpful if you are unsure about the spelling of a command, as well as to speed up command entry.

Router# sh   <- and Tab press

This will be equivalent to entering the full command:

Router# show

Tip

If your keyboard does not have a Tab key, press Ctrl-L instead.
