1.7.1 If You Read the Wrong File

If you happen to read the wrong file, an easy way to get the right file is by typing C-x C-v (for find-alternate-file). This command means "Read a different file instead of the one I just read." After typing C-x C-v, Emacs puts the name of the current file in the minibuffer; you can then correct a typo or the path, the most common reasons for finding the wrong file. Make the correction and press Enter. Emacs replaces the buffer's contents with the alternate file.
