Access Help for Particular Command

Autocomplete Commands

MuPAD® helps you complete the names of known commands as you type them so that you can avoid spelling mistakes. Type the first few characters of the command name, and then press Ctrl+space. If there is exactly one name of a command that starts with these letters, MuPAD completes the command. If more than one name starts with the characters you typed, MuPAD displays a list of all names starting with those characters.

Use Tooltips and the Context Menu
