Completing Path

On this page:


This type of completion aims at speeding up selection of files, folders, etc. The dialog used for that purpose is called rather often, for example when adding a new SDK in the Project Structure dialog , or specifying an application server home directory. .

Completing path

To automatically complete a path

  1. Open the Select Path dialog by doing one of the following:
    • Click the Browse button /help/img/idea/2016.3/browseButton.png.
    • Click New on the Project SDK page of the Project Structure dialog box.
  2. Make sure that the Path field is visible. If the field is hidden, click the Show path link.
  3. Start typing a path. IntelliJ IDEA suggests a drop-down list where you can quickly find the needed directory. As you type, the suggestion list shrinks to show the matching paths only. You can also press Ctrl+Space to show the suggestion list.
  4. Select completion from the list.
