I really recommend that you install different completing package named
ivy from GNU ELPA, by using {M-x package-install RET ivy RET} then
turn it on by {M-x ivy-mode} and explore. It is much more intuitive
and easy to understand then icomplete.

Once you have ivy you may also install counsel package that uses ivy
for various enhancements: {M-x package-install RET counsel RET}

More complex and well thought out completing package is Helm.

Emacs Helm

Emacs Helm Wiki

There are several others.

The notation I am giving here such as:

{M-x package-install RET ivy RET}

is within { } as those are used by package GNU Hyperbole that I use
all the time and that helps in using Emacs, so those notations can be
activated when using GNU Hyperbole by M-RET and those commands would
straight do what they are supposed to do.

GNU Hyperbole

To install GNU Hyperbole:

{M-x package-install RET hyperbole RET}
