    How can I turn on auto-completion with TAB?
    I installed shell.w32-ix86 and started double-clicked bash.exe, but auto-completion for commands and files does not work.
    How to activate it?

    I am having the same problem… Just installed win-bash and would love it if only had auto-completion working… has this been solved?

    Sorry guys, auto completion does not work in win-bash :(

    Or at least I didn't manage to make it work.

    It looks like win-bash just runs as an exe over the default cmd.exe? And cmd.exe allows autocomplete via a registry change. So could this functionality be "mirrored" through in some way?

    It's a key function that dictates whether I can use win-bash or not…
