I love Zsh's tab completions, but it's frustrating when there is only one possible option and I have to tab twice to tab complete the filename.

For example, if this is a list of files in a directory:

- a.txt
- b.txt
- x.txt

and I type cat x<TAB> in ZSH, I get this at the prompt:

$ cat x
x.txt

I have to TAB again to get the value. What can I do to get ZSH to complete the filename with only the first tab?

Here's my setopt:

alwaystoend
autocd
autonamedirs
autopushd
cdablevars
completeinword
correctall
extendedhistory
noflowcontrol
histexpiredupsfirst
histignoredups
histignorespace
histverify
incappendhistory
interactive
longlistjobs
menucomplete
monitor
promptsubst
pushdignoredups
sharehistory
shinstdin

The setting I needed to fix was

zstyle '*' single-ignored show

in the completion.zsh file in oh-my-zsh. I changed it to

zstyle '*' single-ignored complete
