I have a few applications installed on my system, with their names sharing
a common prefix.
Now as the apps are company-specific, let me invent some contrived names:

*messageedit*, *messageview*, *messageformat*, *messagesend*, you've got
the idea.

Now, in may daily work, I'm using only one of them: *messageedit*. The
other are used... well, almost never.

Now, if I type *mess<Tab>*, the name gets completed to *message* and the
completion engine waits for further input.

I would like to tweak the completion in such a way the typing *mess<Tab>*
completes the input to *messageedit* and ignores the other possible apps.

Can this be done in a positive way (by naming the preferred application) or
in a negative fashion (by prohibiting all unwanted completions)?

What are the setting options to do it?

Thank you very much for the answers!

Best regards,
