How can I tell zsh to fallback to filename > completion at that point? Here's an alternative to a case by case disabling of zsh completion, or renaming commands. 1. To plain old fall back on filename completion: zstyle ':completion:*' completer _expand _complete _files \ _correct _approximate The important thing above is the "_files" entry. This means if expansion or completion fails, it will try filename completion. (If that fails too, it will try correction or approximation.) 2. Define a widgit that just completes files, and bind it to something (e.g. <C-X>f, in the example below). zle -C complete-file menu-expand-or-complete _generic zstyle ':completion:complete-file:*' completer _files bindkey -M viins '^Xf' complete-file (Change -M viins to -M emacs if you don't use VI keys) This allows you to complete files anywhere, on any command, at any time, by pressing <C-X>f (i.e. Control X, followed by f).
