Use wildcard character and tab in PowerShell

Wildcard character (*) is very useful in PowerShell. If you forget the cmdlet name, you can try to use * to help you. For example, I'd like to enter Get-WindowsFeature. I can enter the following to help myself.

Then, press "Tab".

PowerShell automatically show the completed cmdlet.

Or, I can use * character to search the service of Terminal service name like this.

Get-Service Te*Se*

Then, press "Tab".

Using wildcard character and tab in PowerShell, it's easy for us to find something.
