Whenever you can invoke statement completion, you can also execute the Edit.CompleteWord command. This command completes a word that is partially complete and that has no other possibilities. And if there are other multiple possibilities, the command invokes statement completion. In the following example, since Console.WriteL has no possible matches other than Console. WriteLine, pressing Ctrl+Space or Alt+Right Arrow will write out WriteLine.
