@cindex minibuffer confirmation
@cindex confirming in the minibuffer
When @key{TAB} completion results in a nonexistent file name and you
type @key{RET} immediately to visit it, Emacs asks for confirmation
because it is quite possible that you expected completion to go
further and give you an existing file's name. Type @key{RET} to
confirm and visit the nonexistent file. The string @samp{[Confirm]}
appears for a short time after the file name to indicate the need to
confirm in this way.
@vindex confirm-nonexistent-file-or-buffer
The variable @code{confirm-nonexistent-file-or-buffer} controls
whether Emacs asks for confirmation before visiting a new file. The
default value, @code{after-completion}, gives the behavior we have
just described. If the value is @code{nil}, Emacs never asks for
confirmation; for any other non-@code{nil} value, Emacs always asks
for confirmation. This variable also affects the
@code{switch-to-buffer} command (@pxref{Select Buffer}).
