You can use various keyboard shortcuts to enter and edit commands in the appliance Bash shell.
|Tab||Completes the current command. If you enter a part of the command name and press the Tab key, the system completes the command name.
To view the commands that match a set of characters that you enter, type a character and press the Tab key.

|Enter (at the More prompt)||Displays the next page of output.|
