Cannot find an installed EXE file

Under Linux if I start to type a command then hit the tab key twice quicly, I get a completion list of all the runable programs. Is there such a thing under Vista ?

I was going round in circles trying to find the evince.exe file using Double Commander.
I have found the exe file for evince now, in a very odd place, so the exe does not appear in the default search path.
I'm out of file upload space as well, so here are two links to show what I found using Everything. ET only took 1 minute to index all of my Vista C:\ drive.
Evince defaults to installing in a local User directory. So I uninstalled it, and re-installed it system wide, under C:\Program Files\Evince-xxx\ so it was available to all users.
I then added the Evince \bin installation directory to the PATH environment variable, and this allows the evince.exe binary to be found and run, now it's in the PATH variable.

Everything is working well, but I'll check them out sometime soon as well.
