** Minibuffer and completion changes
*** Emacs may ask for confirmation before opening a non-existent file
or buffer. By default, Emacs requests confirmation if you type RET
immediately after TAB, and the resulting input is not an existing file
or buffer; this usually happens when the minibuffer input did not
complete far enough and you entered RET by mistake. In that case,
Emacs puts the message "[Confirm]" in the minibuffer; type RET again
to create the file or buffer.
The new variable confirm-nonexistent-file-or-buffer determines whether
Emacs asks for confirmation. The default value is `after-completion'.

change it to nil, Emacs never asks for confirmation.

completion items to the minibuffer. The same principle applies to
