I have put this file in my load path but I would like to make it a standard
option in my .emacs file. How do I do that?

In the comments it says that:

;; highlighting it in the *Completions* buffer.  As before, the window
;; displaying the possible completions is scrolled if necessary.  This
;; feature is enabled by loading this file and setting the
;; `minibuffer-complete-cycle' option to t with `M-x customize-variable'
;; or `M-x set-variable'; it is disabled by unsetting the option (to
;; nil).  Besides t, the special value `auto' enables the feature and
;; also causes the first completion to be selected immediately.

But I don't know how to set a value to "t".

I have tried: M-x customize-variable-t

but that gives no match.
