Environment variables have long been used in computer operating systems. To display environment variables, check "Watch Environment Variables" under "view" menu. PowerCmd allows you to change environment variables from the watch window directly.

Auto Completion

AutoCompletion makes files under current directory easily accessible. You can display a list of files using TAB key. The system icon for files is displayed before the file names. When a file name from the list is selected, you can press TAB or ENTER to insert that file name into your command line. You can also input "\", "..\", or blackslash, and easily seek files or directories on other folders.
