6.1 All Matching

If you have many matching files, they may not all fit onto one line of the minibuffer. Normally, the minibuffer window will grow to show you more of the matching files (depending on the value of the variables resize-mini-windows and max-mini-window-height). If you want Ido to behave differently from the default minibuffer resizing behavior, set the variable ido-max-window-height.

Also, to improve the responsiveness of Ido, the maximum number of matching items is limited to 12, but you can increase or remove this limit via the ido-max-prospects user option.

To see a full list of all matching buffers in a separate buffer, hit ? or press TAB when there are no further completions to the substring. Repeated TAB presses will scroll you through this separate buffer.
