# How to use alphabetical autocomplete?

Mathematica maintains a file with the history of commands input by the user (under \$UserBaseDirectory/.Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/SystemResources/FunctionalFrequency/), so as to provide better suggestions in autocomplete. However I personally prefer a more consitent experience, where I always get suggestions in alphabetical order. Is there a way to configure autocomplete so that suggestions are always listed in alphabetical order, instead of using cues from my history?

• Would you be willing to complete the missing information here? What I want specifically is to be able to autocomplete something else than a simple string in an argument. Example: one of the completions offered in GraphData is {"Knight", {2, 3}}, which is a list, not a string. Is this possible without using .trie files? If not, do we users have access to tools to create such .trie files? – Szabolcs Nov 11 '16 at 16:37
