when I want to see the content of a dir I use ~/ + Tab and it shows me

.bashrc.swp           .gitconfig            .local/   ...

Is there a way to make the results separated by newlines?


.local/   ...
bind 'set completion-display-width 0'

If you run this in the shell, it will affect the current session. If you want it to affect all sessions, put it at the end of your ~/.bashrc.

Or you can put this line in your ~/.inputrc:

set completion-display-width 0
