Re: completion using menu

Adding "menu no" is still the same, i.e., no menu, no completion (by
pressing TAB)
What I want to have is menu completion for all the commands, except cd
(normal completion)

"-d" simply deletes any existing matching style from the list so that
the completion system doesn't see it any more.  You probably need:

zstyle ':completion:*:*:cd:*' menu no

See the manual entry for zstyle under zshmodules for how styles are
