Idk what topic to put this in

I am really new to programming and I noticed during the videos that whenever the block of instruction they start showing you what to type in for a certain task, the first letter they type they usually have an auto detector thing pop up. What is that program called? Thank you

Most of the videos show coding using Sublime Text 2, I believe. Are you referring to the auto-complete functionality, that, when you start to type a word, it makes suggestions for you? This is common in most IDEs these days (Integrated Development Environment) as well as most advanced text editors that support programming languages, like Sublime Text, Coda, etc.

Yeah I was talking about the IDEs. I was thinking because I been doing this for almost 2 months now and HTML and CSS has a alot of tags, selectors etc to remember and i been wondering how much do people actually remember. Do you make a thumbnail some how that is easy to access? Thank you for your answer.
