Yes, there is. A feature known as filename expansion allows you do this using the TAB key.

For example, if you have a path named /home/iceman/assignments directory, you would type as follows: /ho[tab]/ice[tab]/assi[tab] . This, however, assumes that the path is unique, and that the shell you’re using supports this feature.

Thankz
