VIM Wild Menu

I was annoyed by the file name completion in VIM. It completes the whole name of the first match, even if there are a lot of possibilities. That feels like DOS 😦 so that you need a lot of <TAB> to iterate to the correct file.
I wanted to behave like the BASH to complete only the longest possible part and then show a list of possible completions with the second <TAB>.
No problem in high configurable VIM. I found out that this two settings do what I want.

set wildmode=longest:full
set wildmenu
