3 Usage

It is recommended for vcomplete-mode to be enabled:

M-x vcomplete-mode RET

You can also add (vcomplete-mode) to your init file, or enable it through the customize interface.

When vcomplete-mode is enabled, the *Completions* buffer appears and updates automatically (by default), and the completion at point in the *Completions* buffer is highlighted, even if completions-highlight-face (Emacs 29+) is nil.

The following key bindings are also made available when completion is in progress:

C-n

Move point to the next displayed completion in the *Completions* window (vcomplete-next-completion or minibuffer-next-completion on Emacs 29+). This command may be used to move multiple completions at a time with a prefix argument.

C-p

Move point to the next displayed completion in the *Completions* window (vcomplete-prev-completion or minibuffer-previous-completion on Emacs 29+). This command may be used to move multiple completions at a time with a prefix argument.

M-RET

Choose the currently highlighted completion in the *Completions* window (vcomplete-choose-completion or minibuffer-choose-completion on Emacs 29+).

You may use these commands without enabling vcomplete-mode (although they won’t be bound by default). See Completion commands for information regarding defining new commands.
