You will need to edit a registry setting:

  1. Go to menu Start->Run and enter regedit to run the Registry Editor.
  2. Browse to My Computer/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Command Processor.
  3. Double-click on CompletionChar and assign 9 (ASCII equivalent of the TAB key) as the value.
  4. Click OK and close the Registry Editor.
  5. Now when you launch the command window cmd, you can complete paths by pressing the TAB key.
